COP Climbing Wall
The COP climbing wall is definitely a unique place! Come on down and check it out! Our climbing wall is 16' x 20' on the inside with a 32' high climbing surface for a total of over 2,000 sq ft of climbing surface area. There are 16 ropes on the inside and 4 more ropes on the outside. The climbing routes vary from easy to difficult and include roof and overhang sections.
The cost to attend a climbing session at the COP wall is $7, which helps to cover its maintenance costs. All equipment for climbing, including shoes and harnesses, is available at no extra charge. We also offer an annual pass to COP members for $175.
The wall is remotely located behind a farm field in the woods. Power for lighting and heating is supplied by a generator. When visiting the wall, please keep in mind that the driveway to the wall can be very muddy in the spring and winter. Please, do NOT drive all the way back to the wall when the ground is wet, but park closer to the road.
The wall is located in Licking County, approximately 3 miles outside of Granville, Ohio. It is well-concealed on a remote field and may be difficult to find for the first time. There is no number address for the wall. Please contact the Rock Climbing Activity Leader for if you plan on coming out to the wall and for further directions.
From southern Columbus , take I-70 east to exit #122 - "Kirkersville Baltimore." Turn left (north) onto Outville Road. Continue north through Kirkersville. Continue heading north through the flashing light at State Route 16, passing the State Highway Patrol Station on the right. Wesleyan Church Road will be the first street on the right after the Highway Patrol Station.
From northern Columbus , take I-161 east to SR-37. Exit at SR-37 West/York Rd, and turn right at the exit which will put you south on York Road. Continue south on York Road, passing Morse Road to Weslyan Church Road. Turn left on Weslyan Church. You will come to a stop sign at Outville Road.
From the intersection of Outville and Wesleyan Church Roads, drive east on Wesleyan Church Road approximately 0.5 mile and spot a big, red barn on the left. The drive back to the wall is the first drive on the left past this barn. There is no sign and you cannot see the wall from the road. The gravel drive runs back alongside a farm field. The climbing wall is located behind the field in the woods. Please do NOT drive back to the wall when the ground is wet (winter and spring particularly), but rather park near the road and walk back.
