The Predator Wall
is one of the outstanding crags for the climber wanting something a little more challenging with it's collection of excellent 5.12 routes.
The popular Predator Wall - South Face
is a popular destination when the weather is cold while the lesser known Predator Wall - North Face

Drive in to a point even with the Roadside Crag
and then head right (west) to join a road that heads south into another canyon that runs parallel to the main one with Raven Rocks etc.
Continue past a few rough spots in the road (high clearance recommended), crest a small hill and then veer right to a parking area below the right side of the wall's south face. The approach trail leads uphill to the base from the parking area and take 5 minutes or less.
