Description 

Cranner rocks is a good area close to the road, facing NE. Granite.

Summit of Split Rocks is 2.2 miles from the road.

From the summit of Split Rocks head South west (250 true) .2 miles until you are cliffed, do a 30 foot rap off of a 6 foot spike of rock, your rope will easily pull down. Pick your way, down climb scramble, thru an amazing gully system (130 degrees true) that, if done correctly does not require any raps.

The Oregon trail crosses just east of here, well that's what the sign said.

Getting There 

From intersection of 287 and 220 in WY aka Three Forks, go north on 287 approx 8.2 miles until the parking area to view Split Rocks.

The 11c crack climb is a 10 minute walk around to the North side of the parking area cliff, Cranner Rocks.

This rock looks like it would take multiple routes. Are there really only two on it or are there more not listed? Allen

There are many routes - a good guide is the Lander Rock.

We tried to get to Split Rock a couple of weeks ago through the rancher's gate as the guidebook suggested. We were told in no uncertain terms that the gate was closed and that another neighbor closed her access as well.
It seems that to get to any of the rocks, you'd have to go down Agate Rock Road and then head east to Split Rock. Good luck.
