This boulder is just down hill from Moby Dick, and has lots of problems, more than detailed here, on it. Most every face, arête, eliminate or other variant has been climbed.
It is named for the scooping "bowl"-shape south face.
Access issues inherited from Santee Boulder Field
Land is privately owned by large developers, but no signs are in place restricting access. Tagging and littering are common issues and groups including Allied Climbers of San Diego regularly hold clean-ups.
Ethic inherited from Santee Boulder Field
Be sure to wipe dirt from your shoes before climbing to reduce the polishing of footholds. Chipping is unacceptable.
Climb the blunt arête at the south-west (left face of the bowl on the south face) corner of the boulder.
Work up the steep arête on the east side of the boulder. This is the right side of the south-east arête.
