Description

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.

Getting There

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.

Was here yesterday and there's no shade. I didn't check the tree area to the left of the main rope area but none while climbing for sure. Jun 18, 2017

Hi locals, I climbed here several times from 1989-93 with and without a rope. Hardest thing I climbed was probably 5.9 inside the crack east side and contrived. Did all the popular moderates on its north face. Feb 11, 2014

Jared forgot to mention that the climbing within the split is ALL completely contrived. Every portion of the wall could easily be climbed by chimneying, but that would just be too easy! The chimney is only 2 to 3 feet wide, and sometimes it will interfere with flagging a foot or something, but it also makes soloing the climbs much safer, because you can always just stick a foot behind you to catch your fall.
