It's nice to see that climbs as "easy" as 5.12a can make it into videos that are normally dominated by 5.13s and up. Looks like a fun climb. But come on...no top-out at the chains? To quote the Mountain Project description of Predator, a classic 5.13b in Rumney, NH:
"The topout, though mentally and physically taxing, is recommended by some and required by others. The choice is yours, but you are the one who has to look yourself in the mirror in the morning."
Looks like a fun climb but the .12a part has to be the last move to the chains?
Yeah, my friend has climbed it a couple of times and says most of the roof is just jugs on jugs on jugs, and the last move is the crux. Which seems contrived, but I guess that's not that surprising for the Green Belt.
