Description 

The North Bank area is on the road to North Bank campground. The turn off is just past the second buttress on the left. There is a parking area for the use of hikers at the end of this road. However, the North Bank area is actually closer to the second buttress so the parking area at the second buttress is best. It is a short walk up the road and it's the first area that's very close to the road. The right side of the North Bank area is slightly up the hill and faces south (while the rest faces east).

Somebody needs to get two-bolt wall up here. It is the best face climb I've done in Taylor, really left my forearms pumped! I would put it up but it's been too many dead brain cells (and years) since I've done it and I don't want to give bad beta. I particularly remember a desperate sloping hand traverse with no feet at the top.

Just added all of the sport routes on the North Bank along with pictures. I haven't been up there in about 5 years as I live in Texas now, so there may be a few more by now.
