2295 Harrison Street San Francisco, CA 94110


Mission Cliffs, in San Francisco was the original Touchstone gym - built back in 1995 - and remains impressive to this day. With a spectacular headwall that ascends over 50 feet, it has some of the highest indoor climbing you will find anywhere. The terrain ranges from steep and challenging for expert climbers to moderate and gently sloping for those just learning the ropes. For those times when you don't want to tie in, Mission Cliffs also has exceptional bouldering terrain. We have just added a new programs room to our San Francisco location that features yoga, performance cycling and other exciting fitness programs. Add to that a weight room and over a dozen cardio machines and you'll be certain to get an all-around workout. 50 ft. High Lead Wall 14,000 sq. ft. of Climbing Terrain 2,000 sq. ft. of Bouldering Over 80 Top and Lead Ropes

    Looking for a belay partner for tonight, and for various weeknights in the future! I'm just getting back into climbing, so I'll be sticking to 5.9 and 5.10a/b mostly, but I'm hoping to come weekly so that should improve!

      Hi there! I know you posted looking for a possible regular partner but unfortunately, my membership is with PG. Was wondering if you'd be free to climb this Wednesday 9/10 around 4pm for a couple of hours? I climb about the same range as you, probably a step lower but TR nonetheless. lmk!

    The staff aren't that knowledgeable or careful about belay safety, the routes are nice, but the mid-grade routes are DRAMATICALLY overrated. 5.9's are really 5.6's at other gyms, in my experience.

    The bouldering area is teeny tiny and usually packed.

    I find tape coloring system at MC a bit confusing, especially when looking for foot hold by looking down.
