About Whipps Ledges:

You must obtain a permit to climb with a rope system. Bouldering, bah. Refer to the posts on RC for clarification. Contact Mike Barnhart (216) 351-6300, Ext. 264, with the Cleveland Metro Parks system. You can visit the Cleveland Zoo and get things handled their as well, but don't expect same day service. You must have proof of 300,000 USD personal liability insurance (home owners or renters) if you plan on using a rope system to be safe in the presence of our Honorable Rangers.

Camping is by permit only, and then only in designated areas. Which are typically the overused browned out grassy knoll near the top of the ledges parking lot. From experience.. these people think they can stare at the clouds lying in a parking space. Don't attempt to negotiate with them.

If you're extemely bored of climbing, there are many carvings to look at at the Whipps Ledges and the Southern Ledges region.

If you think that it is hip, cool or f'ing awesome to impress your 17 year old gf by etching your own carving on how much you (~temporarily) love her.. don't impress her here. Send a thank you to routemasterand gonzo for having had the page locked.
