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.
I felt the crack was a traditional 5.7 but others feel it is more like a nine. If you climb cracks, this one is a breeze and sucks up pro. The crux is mid way up and involves stemming smears, coupled with intermitten toe jams. Two bolts were placed at the top for rap anchors, or available to use for top rope.
Located just right of center of the crag exposure, 100 feet to the right of the obvious alcove cave structure.
