About Providence:

Just a handful of climbs all rated 5.9 and up. Most climbs can be top-roped with long runners but there are a few bolted routes. Classic crack climb needing large cams as pro.
Nearest town or city: Columbia
Directions: From Columbia: drive south of Columbia on Providence about 5 miles until you come to a river access sign to Providence landing. Follow the access signs to the parking lot. Head east from the parking lot on the KATY trail. Less than half a mile to the bluffs. Scramble up a steep trail to the base of the bluffs.
