Mongolia is an area untapped for climbing and bouldering. FAs await those who are willing to travel and have time to find them. If you happen to find yourself in Ulaan Baatar and don't fancy a romp around the countryside looking for rocks, just hit up Terelj National Park. It's located about 50km northeast of the capital and has a few bolted routes and potential for development of trad lines. Beware, however, the rock is not always as solid as it looks.

Getting There 

Airplane to Ulaanbaatar. Drive if you have the time and resources.

This route is also on the same formation as Swing On In. It is the face just to the right of swing on in. It ends in the exact same way as Swing On In. The crux is just before the ledge near the top. below that the climbing is easy. You will hit a point where the rock gets more vertical and follows a few chicken heads and knobs up to a vertical finger crack which leads you to the ledge and top of Swing On In....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

I grew up here and climbed during the past four years mainly with my best bud from South Africa. It is truly untouched climbing and I would push for no bolts because most the climbing is granite and easily protected. So far all I see on this page is Terelj, but there is way better climbing here than that if your willing deal with roads and backpack for a few days. I will see if I can put up a few more places and photos if I can.
