Tucson Area Bouldering Rock Climbing
An untouched boulder somewhere in Tucson.
This area includes all bouldering in the Tucson region, with the exception of bouldering areas in the Santa Catalina Mountains (Mount Lemmon). See Mount Lemmon (Santa Catalina Mountains) for bouldering there.
While southeastern Arizona is host to many superb sport and trad climbing areas, one common complaint is the lack of quality bouldering.

Joe Kreidel's website, boulderingtucson.com
, is perhaps the best resource for detailed and up to date information on Tucson bouldering.
