About Rabbit Ears Massif:

This broad peak, forested with large pines, sits southwest of the Rabbit Ears. Although it has an unprominent summit, its broad summit area more resembles a plateau. It can be ascended by a walking route up Rabbit Ears Canyon and was climbed in "ancient times", as fragments of old records show. The Massif is bounded on the south by a great vertical wall, facing on Big Windy Canyon, across which runs a curious series of parallel narrow ledges like tiers. On the southwest side lie the long spectacularly sharp Ribs, making up the Rib Cage. On the west side the Ribs smooth out to a wall, bulging and smooth at the bottom (the Bastion) and broken into a confused array of pinnacles and gullies above. Rounding the corner to the north side the impregnable grey fortress of Orp's N Face first presents itself. This eases off into a series of lesser faces, ribs, and gullies as you go eastward until it finally relaxes into the gentle walking slope of the Massif's northeast end.
