Effective now through March 1, in-state climbers will be allowed to register for the Ohio Tree Climbing Competition.  An “in-state climber” is defined as an individual who resided or worked in Ohio for at least six (6) months in the past twelve (12) months.  Up to two (2) in-state climbers from any company/organization physically located in the state of Ohio are eligible to register by the deadline.  After this deadline, all other in-state climbers, as well as any out-of-state climbers, are eligible to register on a first-come, first-served basis. The defending men’s and women’s champions are not included in the total climbers allowed per company/organization. The maximum number of climbers in the competition, including the defending champions, will be thirty (30); subject to change by the Ohio Tree Climbing Championship Committee.  All in-state climbers must be Ohio Chapter ISA members in good standing at the time of registration and competition.

The entry fee is $99.00 per person.  Entry fee is non-transferable and non-refundable.  Pre-registration is required; on-site registrations will not be accepted.

Winners must be an ISA member to compete in the International Tree Climbing Championship – World Championship (ITCC) in 2019. 

Complete and submit the registration form, insurance acknowledgement and release form along with entry fee. Competitors will be provided with a link to the digital copy of the Rule Book and gear inspection forms and information through the ISA.  

Contestants will compete in five preliminary events to qualify as one of the top contestants to earn the right to advance to the championship round – the Masters’ Challenge.  The preliminary events include Ascent, Belayed Speed Climb, Aerial Rescue, Work Climb and Throwline.  The top in-state contestants who have accumulated the highest combined point totals for the five preliminary events advance to the Masters’ Challenge.  Unless otherwise dictated by ISA, the Masters’ Challenge will be set up in an “accumulative” format; that is, points earned during the preliminary events by the top contestants are carried forward into the Masters’ Challenge.  Out-of-state climbers may participate in all preliminary events and are eligible to place in these events.  Only in-state climbers can advance to the Masters’ Challenge.  

The first-place winners for both the men’s and women’s divisions will represent the Ohio Chapter at the 2019 ITCC.  To represent the Ohio Chapter at the ITCC, the first-place winners must have completed three (3) of the five (5) preliminary events within the maximum allotted time and advanced to the championship round.
