Ascent Trip Report

The trailhead at the junction of the North Fork of Fish Creek and Oyster Shell Wash is about 4.8 miles from the end of the paved Split Mountain road, the last 0.6 miles requiring a high clearance 4x. We climbed Split Mountain first via its south ridge, dropped down to a wash, then made our way up to the peak. On the decent, we made our way down to the wash, which we followed south to Oyster Shell Wash and then to the truck. Also, trip stats include ascents of both peaks.
