Ascent Trip Report

The trailhead at Oyster Wash is 5.0 miles from the end of the paved Split Mountain road, and requires a 4x. We climbed Split Mountain on the way up, which made the climb of Split Mountain West more tedious. Our decent route is a much better accent route to the peak because most of the route follows a wash that is relatively easy walking. Also, trip stats and GPS track include ascents of both peaks.
