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


Fossilmax is the right hand bolt line on the west side of split rock, immediately left of the chimney.


9 bolts to a single bolted anchor (with rap chains) shared with TriTip.


West side of Split Rock, immediate left of the split. Rap off the anchors top when done.

Word on the street is the FA was made by Ron Brown, an old fossil, who maxed out at 5.9, and climbed on Fosamax.
