Split Rock is an area comprised of two ~50' boulders split down the middle by a 3-6' wide chimney. The outer parts of each boulder offer some easy toprope climbing and fun bouldering, while the chimney area offers about 10 toprope climbs.The rock is that interesting mixture that makes up all the climbing at Ring Mountain; it's easy to crimp and hold with the hands, but can be slippery on the feet.
From the end of Taylor Rd, take the trail that runs due west (not through the gate) for about 50 yards. You can't miss it.
