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.
Wow, what a fine line. Game Changer follows a line of bolts up the tallest, steepest face at the Battress crag. Starting right of Karp Tool, clip the second bolt to encounter the first crux then similar crux difficulty past the next few bolts. Utilize good holds and bomber under clings for each clip which then protects for the next reach transition. This route isn't over until your over. Pun intended! Continue enjoying this route all the way to the top. Two bolt rap anchor with chains and carabiners will allow for lowering, top belay, or rap descent.
30 feet right of Karp Tool and 20 feet left of Simple Math. First bolt protects for the high reach required to clip the second bolt at the first buldged roof. Two bolt rap anchor with chains and carabiners will allow for lowering, top belay, or rap descent.
