On the northeast face of the moon boulder. Classic thin edging and smearing up the low angle face past the namesake black spot and up. Left or right variations are the same difficulty.

One of my favorite San Diego climbs. It can be a little frustrating when you are slipping off, but keep at it, the falls are safe. It is weather dependent, but it can be done on hot and cold days.

Once you get it, try getting it clean, both ways, multiple times. Then you are a true smear master. *bows head respectfully* Jun 11, 2013

Was surprised at how small the black spot is. Left variation, just get to the two good high crimps and high step, fun Apr 9, 2013

I'm 5'8" and I have to do 3 extra moves in the beginning compared to my 6'2" climbing partner. What an awesome balancey technical face climb! Great must do for santee! Oct 28, 2012
