Climbing Hill is an unincorporated community in West Fork Township, and Woodbury County, Iowa, United States. Climbing Hill is located about 5 miles North of the City of Hornick, Iowa. Its elevation is 1,135 feet (346 m). The community was named by C. E. Ostrander, the first settler and postmaster, whose home was on high ground and could not be reached except by climbing a hill. The name was kept, though the community was moved several times and was finally located on level land around 1867. Although it is unincorporated, it had a post office for more than 130 years, with the ZIP code of 51015.
