Description

There is a printable map (2018) with routes for Logtown. It can be found on the Ohio Climber's Coalition website's Logtown information page or you can access it directly here: Logtown Quarry Climbing Map. There are several new routes to check out, including a few new bolted lines at the Middle Cliffs.

Current information about projects, improvements and other climber activity at Logtown and other NE Ohio climbing areas can be found on the Northern Ohio Climbers group page on Facebook.

The closest restrooms are located in the small park across the river, a short driving distance from the parking lot.

History: There is good information online if your willing to search for it. Also, there is a 1986 (out of print) guide, "A Climber's Guide to the Cliffs of Logtown, Ohio" by Sean Cobourn and Todd McCormick that records the earlier climbing history of Logtown. One of the original guides can be found at the Lisbon Historical Society on Washington Street, between Market and Jefferson.

Logtown: Lisbon, Ohio

Climbers at Logtown have the support of the Village of Lisbon, which includes the Middle Cliffs and the trail to the Big Cliffs.

The Middle Cliffs are short with both Sport and Trad lines. The top of the cliff is steep and is covered with debris; it’s best not to set up a Top Rope from the top of the cliff. If possible, one person leads the route, then sets up a top rope by attaching their gear to the permanent anchors. If you must set up the Top Rope from the top of the cliff, please be careful and try not to knock the debris down onto the climbs.

The Big Cliffs are on private property. Climbing has been going on here for decades, so past practice is used here. There are a few trad routes mixed in with mostly bolted routes. Older bolts have mostly been replaced as of 2018; as always use your own judgement when considering a route. Most of the bolted lines climb between drill marks from the old sandstone quarry. Top roping can be challenging here due to the rotten top portion of the cliff which leads to better rock below. If you do Top Rope or Rappel here, be very cautious of the loose rock at the top section of the cliffs. There is a 3 bolt rappel station on top of The Pit that is a good place to practice rappelling.

It’s best not to set up a Top Rope from the top of the cliff on most of the climbs. If possible, one person leads the route, then sets up a top rope by attaching their gear to the permanent anchors. If you must set up the Top Rope from the top of the cliff, please be careful and try not to knock down loose rocks.

Most of the anchors at Logtown have permanent steel carabiners attached; please attach your own gear to the anchors for Top Roping. The last climber to climb the route can then either lower off(recommended) or rappel off the permanent steel carabiners and clean the route. These anchors are costly and take time to replace, please do not Top Rope directly off the permanent anchors.

Lisbon

Lisbon offers several fine restaurants including: Mary's Pizza Shop, Scratch , and The Courthouse Inn & Restaurant (Vegetarian) .

Numbers Brewing Company serves craft beers of all kinds.

A two minute walk up the trail from the Middle Cliffs takes you to a park with a swimming pool(fee) and restrooms.

The Village is working on funding for a footbridge to cross the river, close to the Climber's parking lot, that will lead to a small park with restrooms.

Getting There

Locate the Lisbon/Roger exit off of State Highway Route 11 near Lisbon, Ohio. Go west on State Route 154 to US Route 30 and go through Lisbon. Just before the bridge at the end of town, turn right onto Logtown Road. Go a short distance until you drive over a paved bike/walking path. The parking lot is just past the bike path on the left.
