DescriptionMore popular as a winter mixed climb (http://www.mountainproject.com/v/providence/106625530), this route was one of the earliest multipitch climbs on Crane Mountain.
Providence follows the gigantic inside corner; as such dry conditions must prevail. The first pitch is long, the crux is at the point where the dihedral pinches down and becomes steep. Think 3D while looking for pro, when nothing presents itself in front of you. The only runout section is on the second pitch, where the original ascent climbed the slab right of the corner with no protection for 50' before moving into the corner, plugging gear, then moving back out to break the upper overhang through an obvious notch.
