Mt. Yale framed by Split Rock.
Know the location of this area? Show us! We don't know it, but we're working on cool new features that need it!


This is a big block, with a split in the back side of it. The rock is mostly good stuff, though if you enjoy smearing a lot, make sure your belayer wears a helmets, granite crystals DO come off.

Getting There 

In Buena Vista, cross the train tracks, then take the street NOT right after the tracks, but the next one, left, next to the video store, I believe. From there, continue on and drive for a ways... then take a right onto BLM land, just before the 2 tunnels, continue on this, past Elephant Rock on your left, it will be on your left, and very easy to see, ROADSIDE. (will post actually street names soon).

Unknown 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a  CO : Buena Vista : Split Rock
This is probably the best trad line on Split Rock. It ascends the obvious, left-leaning crack/ramp facing the road. The crux is moving up and right from the end of the crack to the 2 bolt anchor. If anyone knows the name or FA info, please let me know....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
