Access Issue: Private Property; Battress Wall is currently closed to climbers Details
Currently, as of 2017, the Battress Wall, located along Providence North, is not open to climbers. The previous land developer, which was aware of climbers and provided a verbalized ok to climbing access, pasted away. The current developer and owner does not currently want climbers accessing the cliff line. Providence Main Wall and Providence South Wall is open to climbers accessing the cliff line along the property line and the owner is aware of climbers. Please respect private property and stay along the property line and cliffs.
Meander up a short slab and left facing flake before making the exciting and slightly bold hand-traverse across a dirty ledge to the hidden third bolt. A few steep and interesting face moves take you to the anchors. There's also a fun direct start that can be top roped. While cleaning this route, an angry bat put up a fight when the large, loose flake that he called his home was removed. Later, I found out that Jim and Mike also had a run-in with a bat on their first ascent of Battress...hence all the bat names.
