Our Purpose

To promote and protect Ohio’s climbing for generations to come


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 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.
