Erroneously named Black Spot Boulder in newer guides, as that is a named problem on this boulder. Mar 12, 2007

Where does the Moon Boulder name come from, anyone know? Some history would be great, I'm sure most people know this as the black spot boulder. Feb 21, 2013
Dick told me that this boulder and even it's namesake are actually called Black Dot. The "Climber's Guide to Southern California" by Paul Hellweg and Nathan Warstler from 1988 agrees with Black Dot as well.

Whatever you call this boulder it can eat up rubber. Jul 13, 2015
