The final 15-20 foot book is being climbed by Rahul Korpa.  Climb straight up to where the climber is standing on a 4 inch wide ledge.  Protection could be placed here.  Net move up and left toward the shallow, Right facing, left leaning dihedral (book)  West End Routes  There are two bolts with rings shown in this photo. If you are going to lead The Saw, you can use these to rap.  However, you can't reach these bolts from the top.  There are two better bolts (1/2 inch) about 15 feet to the climbers right at the bush.  To walk off The Saw or Arch Escape, squeeze between these trees and go under the rock.  There are two 1/2 inch bolts at this location.
