Description

Old Castle is home to one of the finest boulder fields in San Diego County. There is a great John Gill quote that says some of the best Boulder problems in the world are the ones that are right off the road. If that is the case these are definitely some of the greatest.
Large quantity of geometric boulders scattered across the hillside with highball futuristic problems for days. Featured in several climbing videos, some of the greatest modern day boulders have all visited and enjoyed the great problems that exist in the surrounding Cirques!!!

Getting There

Take Oldcastle Rd., East approximately 1 mile from the I-15 freeway. The boulders will become very obvious on your left side, the north side of the road. Park anywhere along the side of the road walk up to first roadside boulders and go from there. A series of great trails and landings have been built through the years by local climbers to help further the establishment of this great Bouldering area!
