Private Property issues
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 route is located in the prominent dihedral on the upper reaches of Ridge 1. This line is between Casana Rojo
and The Adultress
A great moderate line, this route runs a nice dihedral for the first 40 feet before breaking left into steep overlaps for the last 40 feet. Big moves to great holds! Really fun.
About 12 bolts to anchors.
