Predator Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: South Face of Predator Wall. A easy to follow tra...
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
with it's handful of less steep but technical outings is a good choice when it's warm.
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.

Stick clip the first bolt, and then climb the vertical/slightly overhanging face past a series of overlapping roofs via thin edges, underclings and sidepulls (a kneebar can be found past the 2nd bolt) to the fourth bolt. The crux is a continuous series of bouldery moves on small edges from the fourth to fifth bolt as you work past some overlaps and a shallow left-facing corner. Once past the crux, work left to gain the sixth bolt and better holds and then hang on for the ride to the anchors. Te...[more] Browse More Classics in California

Does anyone have an beta on the routes on the north side as far as order and location? Iwould gather something like this:
1) Red Tail Arete
2) Brown Recluse
3) One Eyed Jack?
4) Black Widow? ( with a right split line?)
The seemingly right most bolt line splits a few bolts up and the left way goes through a short Dihedral/chimney ending at chains with a plastic Hawaiian hula figurine.. The right variant appears to go over the bulge and has separate anchors?
One eyed jack is described as being the 3rd bolt line from left going through a Chimney, which seems to be the larger, left dihedral feature and would make sense.
What is the lone route out on the thin slabby east facing section of the Predator?
