Although hidden from view, this northeast-facing wall isn't very far from the road and offers a handful of quality routes that are ideal in warmer weather. Climbs here, with few exception, tend to be vertical to slightly overhanging with short, low cruxes and then easier climbing above.

Recommended routes here include The Voyeur (5.11a), Hidden Agenda (5.11b/c) and Cro-Mag (5.12a).

Getting There 

Approach as for the Predator Wall - South Face, but where the road cuts right to the base of that wall continue straight (south) and then park on the left side of the road. Wander left and then right into a corridor to approach this northeast-facing wall which stays shady most of the day.

The route names, ratings and order of the routes in the text(Troy's SoCal Sportclimbing Guide, page 240) is correct. Starting with Redneck on the far right and ending with The Roundup on the far left. However the corresponding lines in the topo(on the right of the three formations) are not correct. Looks like the Offwidth goes up the face and not up the obvious chimney/offwidth to the left.
