  The lower section of the creek draining the south side of Mt Split Open is steeply gorged and impassable. From Kea Pass, sidle across relatively flat ground above the gorge (true left) and below the bluffs of Mt Split Open to scree and rock slabs leading to a small snow basin. Above Pt 1803 metres, shingle basins to the east provide easy travel, skirting around pinnacles on the Divide. Beyond, at an easily accessible col, regain the Main Divide at about 2000 metres. Gravel leads to the summit.

P Willis, April 1939
