Located near Beach City, OH. Climbing during the summer is nice, but obviously being in ohio shoulder seasons are probably the best bet.

BIG WALL IS THE MOST POPULAR, however there are six other areas that are undocumented in terms of names, grades, and beta. If you know anything about these areas please contribute!

Thank you!

Getting There 

Travel east on I-70 to I-77. Go north on I-77 to the Strasburg, Ohio exit. Exit and turn left going through Strasburg on Rt. 250 & Rt. 21. After you pass through Strasburg, Rt. 250 & Rt. 21 will split. Take Rt. 250 which is the left turn. Follow Rt. 250 through Wilmot and go about a mile. Cross a bridge over a creek and turn right immediately onto Alabama Ave. Another half mile and you’re at the entrance. (Submitted by becky

The climbs at Beach City Nature Preserve are scattered about the 1,912 acre Beach City Wildlife Area. There is a lot of sand-stone bouldering and top roping potential scattered about the park.

Is there any sort of database on this area other than MP?

I went to check it out a few days ago. I've lived 20 minutes from there for most of my life and never knew. When I got out there, I saw a church group that had just finished what looked like some rappelling. There are 3 sets of bolts at the top of what they call the "Big Wall" on here. I'm hoping to go back and explore a bit more though soon!

Coming in from out of town this weekend. We tried to find a place to camp, ended up "settling" for a priceline motel. Any suggestions for next time?

My wife and I climb and rappel quite often at the Big Wall and the Dundee Falls Corner. Over the course of the next month or so I will be working on bolting some sport routes on the Corner, this area seems to stay the most clean and has some good route potential. If anyone cares to help out let me know.
