Eric talked me into some night climbing.
This is the area that surrounds perhaps the largest boulder in the valley, otherwise known as Moby Dick
. There are several boulders that envelope this kingpin, and offering the greatest concentration of boulder problems and some of the best dime bouldering that Santee has to offer.
This is the area on the east hillside dominated by the biggest boulder in the area, the Moby Dick boulder.

Its funny that people are naming routes that were put up before they were born. If you didnt do the FA, you cant name the route, and 99% of the problems at santee are 30+ years old.
