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.
Well protected 5.6 climbing leads to an exciting, happy ending. Route starts on a high angled, lower slab face and seam to a ledge. From the ledge, head up into the left-facing, butt crack dihedral to gain a pinch then an uncling and layback that helps gain high finger stacks. Mount the right butt cheek using a high left foot and a high right smear. Better holds allow the rap anchor clip or continue climbing out right to the top. Route gets its name for the extra large, whole grain excrement left by some mysterious animal.
As of Nov 2016, Big Shit is the first bolted line you will encounter along the typical approach trail at the base of the crag. This places Big Shit towards the right hand end of the Batress rock exposure.
