Primal Wall is the first rock exposure north of Providence parkinglot, along the Katy Trail, that displays an obvious resessed cave structure. Several cedar trees offer shade year around but warm, late summer days should be avoided.

Getting There 

Heading north. or left, from the Providence Access parkinglot, walk 400 - 500 ft then follow a faint wildlife trail right and angle up the hill to your right then back left to reach the base of the band of rock. Continue walking north, along the cliff. Pass below the cave shelter, then look for routes on your right.

Easy 5.6 - 5.7 climbing provides good holds for making chest high clips. Then, towards the top, the 5.8 crux forces the use of some balance and smaller vertical edges, below the last bolt, then small feet, slopers, and a high step to gain the rap anchors, at the last 5.9 crux, just above the last bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in Missouri
