A Look Back On 2018: Northeast Ohio


Last year, the OCC was thrilled to expand our stewardship efforts as we completed two Adopt-a-Crag events in Northeast Ohio. In April, we focused our attention on graffiti removal, trail development, and trash cleanup at Beach City Wildlife Area. Working together with volunteers from The Dirt Line and Kent State University Climbing Club, we were able to remove lots of graffiti and trash while also improving access to the Big Wall climbing area. This was our first time completing stewardship projects at an Ohio Department of Natural Resources area, and we were thankful for the opportunity. The OCC hopes to continue our positive stewardship efforts on state lands in 2019! For more information about the climbing available at Beach City, check out Mountain Project:

Logtown Quary has a great history of climbing, and the area saw a lot of major improvements in 2018 including rebolting of many of the classic climbs, graffiti removal, trail development and general cleanup. In May, we hosted our first Adopt-a-Crag event at Logtown, and it was great to see a lot of the graffiti disappear. This summer also saw the addition of an informational kiosk as well!

If you interested in showing support for the redevelopment and improvements happening at Logtown, consider purchasing a Logtown t-shirt from Connect Climbing! 100% of the profits from the shirt go directly back to the Ohio Climbers Coalition. Glenn, owner of Connect Climbing has been a huge supporter of the OCC this past year, and actually flew out from Utah to help support our stewardship efforts at Beach City, Logtown, and the Mad River Gorge!
