Split Mountain

Summitview from Split Mountain

Split Mountain is one of the six technical-only peaks listed by the Glacier Mountaineering Society. The name is a descriptive one, as the summit block is literally split into two. Easily viewed from the town of Saint Mary, reaching the top of the peak is another matter. The shortest route entails nearly two entire days of hiking round trip, the hardest approach entails climbing an arete or knife ridge from the Continental Divide out to the main portion of the mountain, followed by the technical climb up the summit block.
