Description 

Home to some great bouldering, Mission Gorge is overlooked by most in the bouldering Scene. Largley due to the approach involved to most Cirques and the fact that some of the better boulders have been off limits for decades, due to habitat sensitive areas existing in the park.
Listed here are a few of the more convenient problems that have flown off the radar.
Still the best recourse to the majority of the bouldering here is the San Diego Climbing Guide book by CH and DK. Also CH website. climbingtoposofsandiegocounty....

Getting There 

Bouldering Cirques are throughout the park.
