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.

Great flake, and a stout 5.7 grade. On the bottom of the South Tower, find a crack to the R. of a small pinnacle. One pitch up to some questionable fixed pins, and then downclimb the gully to the R. There is a second pitch that requires aid I believe.
Cams in the 0.5-2" range, wired stoppers, and some larger hexes.
I thought this first pitch of Shiva's Dance was very good and am surprised that I had never climbed it, and perhaps never even noticed it. There is a two bolt anchor at the top for rapping. You can toprope The Offset (hard and thin and sketchy gear) from there.
