BETA PHOTO: Front side of split rock.
The most prominent of the Druid Circle boulders, just off the road on your left as you approach up the spur rd. It is split in two by a large cleft (climbing inside) and the front face has an obvious traverse crack running up and left. The back side is home to the popular overhanging Sit Down Traverse.
Upon entering the Park from the west entrance (Twin River Rd), go to the left and park, then continue north up the road past the gate and almost immediately take the paved road to the left. Follow this back, passing the Heart Boulder and The Egg. After a dip and a rise up a curving hill, you will see a big split boulder on the left with an obvious traversing crack facing you. You have arrived.You can also drive here, but you must go all the way around the lake. The 10-15 minute walk is easy and a lot of classic problems are on the way.

The move isn't too tough, but the feet are awkward and you're probably pumped enough. ...[more] Browse More Classics in Rhode Island
