Description

Santee boulders is an easily accessible bouldering spot.  Bring a crash pad, shoes, and a few friends to climb a circuit or get a good workout in by logging laps on your favorite problems.  Please respect the area (stay on existing trails), keep it clean, and take any trash you find or brought with you when you leave.

Getting There

Take highway 52 from San Diego to Mast Blvd. Head east for about 0.5 miles. On your right will be the West Hills Park. Park there and walk across the street (carefully) to the boulder fields.

Update: Access issue with parking as of 3/19/2020. Climbing is still open and safe though. Please see the comment section.
