Split Mountain's shape is unique because of the twin summits seperated by a notch. The easiest way to climb Split Mountain is the North Ridge Route. The standard route is Red Lake Trail from Red Mountain Creek trailhead. To get to the trailhead the climber needs a vehicle with high ground clearance. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is not necessary, but can be helpful. The dirt road is in poor condition and about 13 miles long. Allow 1 hour for it alone. The climb is only class 1 or 2 except for a short section of class 3. No ropes are necessary.
