Rainbow Drive 5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a  CA : High Desert : ... : Predator Wall - South Face
Located on the far left side of the Predator Wall's south face and easily identified as a left-facing corner system. Some bouldery moves past the first bolt is the crux, but the fun continues as you enter the dihedral above. A fun combination of stemming and liebacking up the corner, which is more strenuous that it looks, leads to anchors.An area favorite that favors technique over pure strength, the variety of skills needed to climb this make it a good warm-up for the harder lines on this wall....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

We found 2 routes that arn't in the Mayr guide. We didn't do either one of them. one is on the right side (East end) of the main wall and looks fairly easy. The other one is right of this on the East wall and looks harder.

There are two routes on the narrow east face between Easy Prey 10a, far right side of the south face and The Redtail Arete 12a, far left side of the north face. The left route, just right and around the arete from Easy Prey is 11a/b, I can't remember what we called it. The right route, just left and around the arete from The Readtail Arete is called Central High. I can't remember what it's rating is 5.9 or 10a. It has a high 1st bolt and two more above to no anchors on top. It's an old Brutus route done in the 80's.
