The lower reaches of the creek draining the south side of Mt Split Open are steeply gorged and
impassable. From Kea Pass, or the shelf below the 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 the
col at the foot of the South Ridge. Follow the ridge to the summit.
