Ascent Trip Report

There seems to be some confusion as to which peak is Split Mountain West. Hopefully this clarifies the issue. Pt. 649 on the USGS Harper Canyon Quad, also called Split Mountain West Peak 1690 per the San Diego Peak Club, or Peak 1640 if you count the contours, or Split Mountain West P1700,  aka Split Mountain North West if Peak 1690, or Peak 1680 if you count the contours, aka Split Mountain South East, aka Split Mountain is the high point. But if point 33.01485, -116.12395 is lower than 33.01934, -116.12824 then Split Mountain West becomes Split Mountain South East and Split Mountain North West becomes Split Mountain West. To further clarify there is also the Split Benchmark or Pt. 1170, aka +1160 nearby but not to be confused with Split Mountain 1,447, aka 33.00452, -116.12017. The register on UTM 581500 3653560 was originally at E8573491.7,N17098717.4  (NZTM2000) But then moved to 11SNS8190553154 (MGRS for ease of use) but is now back on Pt. 649 or 33 1 9.67,-116 7 41.73, Split Mountain Westish.
