Sycamore,

That would be great, what general region of Ohio are you located? I am in Southeastern Ohio and do most of my climbing in the Hocking Hills area in around Logan.

I live in Columbus but travel all over Ohio. I am very familiar with Hocking county as I have done numerous surveys in the area for hemlock woolly adelgid. Thankfully the rappel cliffs are all clear of that. There are some good climbs in Hocking, of note there is a 100ft chestnut oak in Clear Creek Metro Park. It is a hike to get there but a fun climb.

Sycamore,

That sounds great! I would be very interested in climbing sometime soon if this weather gets any better. I frequently travel to Columbus so if you have a good tree in that area or would like to come down to Logan to climb with me and two other guys I climb with, that would be great. We are hoping to get permits soon to climb an amazing 600 yr old white oak in Logan. I posted a couple pics of it under the climber report/sharing forum. My email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., we can further discus climbing if you're interested.

I know that tree! That is "The Great White Oak" in the cemetery in Logan. I measured that this past November and rescued some seed from the mower. That is a really cool tree. Let me know when you get those permits and I will climb that with you. I know of some great climbs in Columbus so the next time you are in town, and have time, let me know and we can arrange something. I have your email and will contact you shortly.

Hey guys, I am interested in possibly joining you on a climb. I live in Wellington (Lorain) , Ohio. Have been climbing for 2 years, have my own gear, just need to get out more. I do DdRT style, learned from Shelly and Bill Byrne over at Earthjoy. If any of you are interested in having a tag along, please let me know.

Thanks,
Scott

And chance for tree climbing near The Wilds or Cumberland Ohio sometime during July 12-18 when I will drop off and pick up kids at camp?

MeisterSOB,

I am moving up to your area next month and will be bringing my climbing gear if you want to get up into some trees. I will be staying just outside the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. Let me know!
