This boulder features the famous Zig Zag Crack. Just east of the Moat Boulder, locate the boulder with the classic, splitter crack on its sheer face. That is the Zig Zag Crack and this is the Zig Zag Boulder.
Follow the trail through the Black Jacks. Before you get to the Moat Boulder, look to your right and you will see an unmistakable 15 foot crack. This is not to be confused with The Black Jack Crack, which is also a splitter, but is about 30 feet tall.
