Summit Signatures

1C Split Mountain

Location: Kern County, California

Named by the USFS for the distinctive cleft appearance of this summit. One of about twelve "split" features so named in California.

Name first appears on USFS Sequoia National Forest (south half) map (1916).

Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1970, as follows:
SPLIT MTN. (6800+) Greenhorn area.
Climb via Black Mtn saddle. (14 mi., 3000' gain). Another great climb in the
Ortega Hill-Samon Pk. tradition. Plentiful manzanita and buckthorn. Views
of the Kern River Valley and Lake Isabella. Spectacular gorge between the
split peaks. Exploratory led June 13, 1970.
