|I stopped and checked out some of the boulders north of Old Castle Rd. near Valley Center and saw some climbers had been quite busy climbing several boulders, with chalk and cleaned-up landings. I was wondering if they might be active on here. I checked out probably half of the boulders on the hillside but it looks like the best have already been found. Not sure about land ownership, but there's no fences or signage. Maybe if it's OK with everybody, we could put some beta up for this area?

|Sounds like you went to the McQueen Bouldering area. This area has been climbed at for years, with new stuff going up as recent as this year. It's always been more of a low key local spot, with obvious limitations as far as parking and disturbance of neighboring residents. I have discussed access with local climbers before and will again but I would advise against posting information on this area. For the reasons mentioned above, it will quickly become a issue if large groups of people are heading out there.
