    TR: Mission Hills San Diego

    Went rock climbing a few minutes from my house the other day!
    I'd heard a little bit about this place, but never checked it out. I've never been rock climbing before. It didn't seem like a very beginner friendly spot. There was some slick crack climbing and the lowest route was Mission Control, a 5.7 (shown in the video) that didn't have many bolts on it and seemed like it was under rated.
    Anyone else been there?

    Sometimes fear just means that you need to push your shins into the front of your ski boots and fuckin send it!

    Nothing like good beer after a day of climbing. I have never been there, looks like fun juggy climbing. It is amazing how many climbing spots have been developed in soCal since I climbed a lot.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Nice we can see that from the house. That old damn up there is kinda cool. It's the oldest water project in the western US and was built by enslaved natives.

    A TR . . . cool! Looks like a fun place. Climbing isn't easy to document with photos and even harder to video. Nice job.

    Side note: I really want a camper rig.

    Nice video. I have climb there many times, but it has been awhile. Nice that it is in town and has intermediate routes, but that facies of the Santiago Peak volcanic is so calcium rich all the holds feel greasy. Check out El Cajon mtn (El Cap), only a few more minutes drive from Cardiff and the rock is really good. Several intermediate multi pitch sport and trad routes. Takes about an hour to hike in and painfully hot in the summer, but this time of year it is awesome.
