The West Bank / Wild West / Secret Crag has been problematic for years due to access concerns. There have been negative encounters with gun-toting landowners who have alleged that the entire mountain is on private property. Typical approaches involve brief crossing of railroad property which appears to be prohibited.
Exact demarcation of property boundaries are not always clear. When in doubt, be discrete or polite.
Do not park your vehicle near the railroad tracks near Plainview. It is a well-known irritant to Plainview residents.

This is really good route. I am not sure if it is a FA. An old Rolo guide has it as a 5.?. Start on Capt. Beyond, cut left at first roof, obvious ring bolt. Cool movement, cross overs and stuff. 2 more pins get you to the left crack. Climb this all the way to the big ledge. This is a long pitch with lots of climbing. The 1st pin is tough to clip. It could possibly get a PG-13 rating. The grade might be a wee bit soft, we climbed "Three Mousketeers" next to it and it felt as hard, that gets a 5.11c. Whatever, this is highly recommended.
Bring a couple extra in the yellow and green Alien size.
Kevin, this is a good line. I seem to remember doing it a very long time ago, but don't remember going all the way over to the other crack (Beginner's Mind?). I do not think we were the first to do this either. Killer climbing on killer rock.
