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

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.

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.
