Intro Outdoor Rock Climbing San Diego. About climbing at Mission Trails:
Welcome to San Diego’s backyard and NATURE playground. Mission Trails has a long history of rock climbing tracing back to the mid/late 50’s. Today, about 200 different rock climbs have been established in the area – most of them are great for beginner to intermediate rock climbers. The average length of routes for the Intro Outdoor Rock Climbing San Diego course is about 45 – 60ft./15-20 meters with a few up to 100ft./30 meters. Mission Trails offers the most accessible rope climbing in San Diego. It is very close to the city and beaches (25min. drive) and for a good reason it has become a popular recreational hotspot in San Diego for hikers, rock-climbers and mountain bikers. A one mile short approach trail leads to the start of the first climb in under 20min. One of the great things about the Intro Outdoor Rock Climbing San Diego course in Mission Trails, is that a majority of the climbs are not as steep compared to what is traditionally found at climbing gyms, making it a perfect place for your first time rock climbing experience. Many low angle climbs help to let you focus on your climbing technique, especially footwork, which is one of the most important basic climbing techniques. Low angle climbs are also not as intense as steep/overhanging climbs so you will have moments to look around and enjoy the views while you’re on the rock, making for a very well rounded experience. Considering Mission Trails extremely close proximity to the city, it is an excellent spot to immerse yourself in nature while not having to travel a great distance to do so. The park offers a variety of animal and plant life which makes the experience that much more enjoyable. An early morning arrival time is ideal for summer months when the temperature climbs to moderate but at times, somewhat warm, temperatures. Outdoor climbing with the Intro Outdoor Rock Climbing San Diego course is an awesome way to build relationships, share laughs, and generally just have a good time doing something you wouldn’t normally do in San Diego.
