The Area Suggest change

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.

Getting There Suggest change

This is the area on the east hillside dominated by the biggest boulder in the area, the Moby Dick boulder.
