If climbing during the summer, this area is shaded, but best climbed in the morning, due to the cliffs south west exposure. During the winter, late in the day will prove to be a warming reminder of why you love to climb.

South Providence is currently home to a wide variety of sport route difficulties, ranging from 5.7 to 5.13. A couple mixed routes provide traditionalist with gear placement options, but for the most part established route follow sport route bolted anchors.

Slab Town 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  MO : CM: Providence : South Area

The next mid route crux requires the use of toe and finger tips to balance up and left to the generous clipping holds. Mantle on to the third ledge, clip left of the large flake and continue straight up to rap anchors or climb all the way to the top of the cliff face....[more]   Browse More Classics in MO
