Ascent Trip ReportI started at dawn and armed with Eric Willhites trip report (copy and paste)
Thanks to Eric for sharing his information, it really helped. Be sure to study his map and pictures, they were big help to me prior to .
Anyway, it is worth using Eric's report and doing your map work and carry plenty of water in summer / late summer as I still went through 4 quarts and a lot of salt tablets. I saw no one else on the mountain and no recent footprints. I had cell coverage but during the hike I gained more than 3000 feet and took 4.5 hours to get to the summit, slow even for me but I took a lot of breaks after it started heating up. Also see the summitpost page for Split mountain by Scott Patterson.
I camped at the Green River campground nearby and would recommend using it and getting an early start to beat the heat.
