Upper Theology Crag Rock Climbing
The engraving at the base of Theology Crag
A short hike past the popular Seven Falls area. Touts some of Santa Barbara's most exciting sport climbs on interesting rock. The climbing tends to be dead-vertical to overhanging and on the difficult side (5.11 to 5.12). Most of the routes are in the shade all day so climbing is great year-round (it can even get quite cold in the winter).
Hike up Tunnel Trail and head towards the junction of Inspiration Point. Once you reach Mission Creek and the junction for Inspiration Point, hike up Mission Creek till you reach some relatively easy bouldering/scrambling. You will pass several pools then encounter about 10 minutes of riverbed walking. The crag is on your right and has a large carving from the early 1900's at its base.
