This is the small boulder that rests against the left side of the steeper, taller Periscope Boulder. This boulder has several easier climbs, most involving the prominent crack line that splits the boulder midway. This is a great block if you’re just getting into bouldering or if you’re looking to warm up before onsighting "True Grit".

Getting There 

Follow the Split Rock Trail trail that starts at the park office. The trail will lead you directly to the Periscope Boulder. Broken Block is just left of Periscope, almost touching it.
