About Geneva Hills:

Geneva Hills is one of the most dense bouldering and climbing areas in the Central Ohio Area. There is plenty of climbing and bouldering for all skill levels. The area is managed by the Christian based summer camp, but is open for recreational use. For more information about the camp check out the website. Climbers and other recreational users must register at the main office and must also sign a waiver. Please respect this regulation, it helps them see who is using the area and for what purpose. Camping is also permitted for a small fee. Donations are accepted to help maintain the trails and campgrounds. A climbing guidebook is in the works. There are many undeveloped climbing sites here and we could use all the help we can get cleaning and developing routes. Come on down and check out the rocks! Make sure to get a trail map before heading out to the rocks. They are available at the office or download online at
