Predator in Nomad's Cave.

Description 

Climb drilled finger pockets up the center of the cave. It is short and powerful with poor footholds. Check out the extension Predator X (13b) for more chipped pocket action.


Protection 

4-5 bolts.

I think the extension (Predator X) is more like 13a. I know it's just a drilled route so who cares, but just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents.

This route is great, even though the holds have been drilled. The beta for the crux is to do a foot hand match on the jug and then go to the mono.

Nope! Andy's wrong. Jug by the third bolt right, crank up to the two finger pocket left, hit the mono right, then grab the good jug left.

Manufactured "routes" get no stars.

It is manufactured, but it climbed okay.

Fun route, burly overhanging till the last moves. Figure 4s and some big reach lock-offs. Basically no feet with rigid footwear, but the pockets are deep and solid. Accuracy is key, and look for the bat hang(s).
