This formation lies across the canyon from The Citadel. Several routes are located on the south and west faces and are described in a topo published in an old Rock&Ice. The relatively easy approach and descent make it a good destination for a relaxing daytrip.
Approach via the Topp Hut road and the trail which leads into Rabbit Ears Canyon (see The Citadel for details). It is easy to spot the wall and the routes on the South Face from the approach trail. The trail forks just before reaching the bottom of the canyon. Take the left (straight) fork (if you do notice the other taking off sharply to the right). Once on a boulder field, look for a cairn on the other side. From the bottom of the canyon, go up next to a large rock shown in the photo.

Go right just before the second cactu...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
