This impressive rock is split down the middle into two parts, so neatly that it seems as if it was performed with the precision of a laser beam. It measures about 6 m high and 9 m wide, and the overall shape may have been the result of wind erosion and chemical weathering. The two parts of the rock are both balanced on small pedestals and the southeast face of the rock is covered with numerous petroglyphs.

However, its most unusual feature is that it's actually split in two, down the middle, with each section of the rock balanced atop a thin, small pedestal. Although many wonder whether nature could have created such a feature, there are three leading geological features behind one of the world's most spectacular rock formations
