Climbing in Ohio: The History & Advocacy That Has Shaped It

Part of the Clintonville Outfitters Outdoor Adventure Presentation Series:

Start off the outdoor season and learn all about climbing groups and area's to climb in Ohio! This talk is an introduction of the Ohio Climbers Coalition, projects they completed in 2018, projects they plan to work on in 2019, and the climbing community here in Ohio.

Climbing areas are free for climbers to climb without a permit and, where applicable, sport routes and top-rope anchors are bolted safely and properly maintained. The Ohio Climbers Coalition (OCC) has a robust, active membership base who, together, form a grassroots network that not only increases climbers’ influence on local policy issues, but acts as a channel for extending climbing advocacy and stewardship work.

The OCC offers both private landowner and public land manager resources to help understand risk management and liability protection. Working as a united community, in cooperation with land managers and environmental agencies, the OCC helps to organize volunteer events, allowing climbers to care for and give back to lands where they climb. Among the events are organizing trash clean ups, climbing safety classes, trail construction and maintenance.
