Rockfax Description
An historically significant classic of great difficulty. The climbing is extremely sustained and technical with only the odd poor shake-out. Originally the route finished at the halfway ledge, subsequent ascents have ended at the rest out on the right above the redpoint crux. There is a link-up into Predator at 8b+ named Cry Baby that takes the undercuts left to the finish of Predator. © Rockfax
