BETA PHOTO: Split Rock west face slab routes. Both are 5.9-ish...


This route is the left-hand line on the west side of Split Rock, with 8 bolts.

Like Fossilmax, it is well-protected and a good intro to slab climbing.

The crux comes early.


From the namesake split on the west side the rock, this is the leftmost of the pair of bolted routes on this section. The main trail to the Sugarloaf passes right by it. Rap off the anchor.


8 bolts to a rusty but sturdy anchor with rap chains.

A couple footholds have broken off the low crux parts when I was there 20 March 2015. Makes it a bit harder than 9+ now.
