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.

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