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.
The Inseminator start (1st pitch) is about 250 feet from the start of the cliff band and about 100 feet up from the break in the cliff. To the right of a large pine tree, the climb starts from a flat area, uncharacteristic of Ridge One.
The first bolt can be reached from the ground and is worth clipping, because some of the climbs incut edges are really thin. Pull past these edges to a right-leaning crack system, and then crank left over a small but fun roof (10b-ish). A few more feet of slab yields the first set of anchors. Continuing from here is the 12c 2nd pitch of The Inseminator.
