These slabs mark the northwestern end of the Rabbit Ears Towers Spur, at the mouth of the Rabbit Ears Canyon. Take the trail from the Mine to the mouth of this Canyon, then strike through the brush for a few feet to the bottom of this moderately inclined wall. Traverse from the left into the great chimney which mounts diagonally. Follow this to a large juniper near the top, then traverse a ledge and finish the climb on the right side of the wall. Descend by dropping down the canyon to the east back to Rabbit Ears Canyon. There are a great number of relatively easy routes (and some not so easy) left on this wall, with its complicated structure of ledges, slabs, and large blocks near the top. The rock, especially near the top, is some of the finest in the Organs. Because of this variety and the shortness of the approach it is recommended for beginners and training climbs.
