Nice and shady spot amongst the Rambles, where a climber can be alone, with compelling need for neither spotter nor crashpad. Split Rock only has five established problems on it (ranging from V0 to V5), but some of them are very high-quality, and worth projecting and coming back to.
The rock is only steps from Freestanding Rock, down the road from Arch Rock, and (if you're a braver climber than I) Hepatitis Boulder. These three or four together make for a solid little bouldering area.
Follow the dirt trail from the parking lot for the Boat House - In a few minutes, you'll see the unmistakable Freestanding Rock. Walk about 100ft west, and you'll find the equally unmistakable Split Rock.
