Split Mtn 14,058 — Ski Descent and Sleeping on the Summits 2 Warmup
Monday April 28.
En route to California I stopped off to the Eastern Sierra with Plans to Climb Split Mtn, one of California’s 15 14,000′ Peaks.
With 2 feet of recent snow, I was fortunate enough to get a 4500′ vertical ski in off the North Col of Split Mountain.
I skinned up the basin above Red Lake, then climbed a steep couloir on the Mountain’s north side. This allowed me to access the gentle slopes for the last 600′ to the top!
