Exciting news for climbing access in Southern Ohio

Hello climbers, it’s been a while but wanted to update you on some exciting developments and ask for your help. Jack Santo, president of the OCC was recently down in Springfield Ohio (in Clark County, half an hour north east of Dayton for people located in northern Ohio) to explore the potential of two new climbing sites. The Springfield area has some great rocks and the OCC is currently working with the Access Fund and the Clark County park system to develop plans and secure climbing areas. But we need your help!

We are looking for volunteers in southern Ohio to assist the OCC with several tasks. Climbers with technical knowledge and skills, in addition to enthusiastic beginners, are wanted and needed to ensure these projects get off the ground and move forward. If you have any interest in outdoor climbing, in increasing access, and in having fun, the OCC needs your help. Below is a link to our Volunteer form on our website. 


Climbers located in the Dayton and Columbus area are especially needed, but climbers across Ohio are encouraged to join our team. Thanks for your earlier interest in the work of the OCC.
