Predator 12c.

Description 

Predator is THE line on the Predator Wall. The brilliant orange rock is perfect, the line heads straight up the center of the wall, the moves are flowy, and all the holds magically appear where you need them.

Good, flat holds lead to a funky mantle past the first bolt. Keep following decent holds separated by a few small edges that lead left, and pull into a shallow left-facing corner with huge holds(5.9 moves) but no bolts for about 15 feet(hence the PG13 safety rating). Rest up on some generous horizontal holds below the steep upper headwall.

Pumpy, sequential sidepulls, the occasional "rest" hold, and diminishing feet take you past the final 20 feet to a tricky mantle just below the anchors.

Location 

This is the most chalked up route on the wall. Second bolted route from the large chimney that forms the left side of the wall.

Protection 

Bolts and a two bolt anchor. Beware of the 15 foot runout in the middle of the route.

Easily get down with a 60 meter rope.

This line is actually the third line from the from the chimney, not counting the alternative start to cottonmouth. The chat steel guide has the Phil Fisher route and predator mixed up.
