There is a 12b/c just between Predator and the second pitch of Tropicana called The Opportunist that Chris Smith put up a Few years ago.. great route. Most of it is really fun, steep, juggy 5.11 with some long moves. You then come to a rest, then head left to surmount a bulge at the top on smaller holds with nice air below you. With a long rope and a few slings to reduce drag you can combine the first pitch of Orange Crush (5.9 and now bolted) with it to to make a long super pitch.

This route often seeps, but can be climbable even when somewhat wet.

This is a great barefoot climb.

Also, there are 2 second pitches to Captain Hook called Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, both 12c. I forgot which is which. They are good, steep interesting routes that few know about that are very worth doing. To do them, climb Capt Hook past the usual anchor to a higher one. Clip in and pull the rope through and get back on belay to reduce drag and shoot for the left route. A 60 meter rope will get you lowered from the top. For the right route, you can also come in from Purple Microdot and do the same thing with your rope. I am not usually into increasing the fixed draws at Rumney, but these routes could use them, hopefully nice tan colored ones
