BETA PHOTO: Split Boulder: East overhang, upper tier 1 Cig Ma...


Great pocket and block climbing on a tall, steep wall with a perfect landing. Afternoon shade.

Squat start just left of the buried rock in two juggy pockets. Make few moves up to a small cobble/pocket (the broken hold) then make a long move directly right to a block pinch. (Edit: The new beta involves the hueco to the right to gain the block pinch.) Move across and then up to a jug. From here a long move up left to a white pocket, then continue straight up to eventually top out at a small palo verde.


Southeast face of Split Boulder. Cig Machine starts at two jug pockets at the left side of the uphill section, next to the edge of the ledge.


Pads and a spotter. The landing is obstruction free.

A key handhold has broken, making this a much harder problem.
