Explore the tree-tops and enjoy a new view of your Metroparks at beginner-friendly try-it programs, relax with hammocking at height programs, or make unique memories during guided canopy tours, night climbs, overnight snoozes at height, and more! Adaptive tree climbing gear is available by request at all tree climbing programs, but certain climbing trees are more accessible than others. Please contact the program leader or Ashley Smith at 419-265-2920 to determine if the program location meets your needs.
Chest harnesses are a commonly-used adaptation that holds the climber's upper body closer to the rope system, allowing the climber to focus on advancing their knots without being tipped back in their harness. Chest harnesses work well for climbers with a high center of gravity. Two styles of chest harness are available to allow for a comfortable fit for different body types. Chest harnesses are available on all climbing programs; just ask for one from your climbing instructor.
