This small area has two ~50 foot tall granite pinnacles (the ears) with three quality, vertical routes on them.

Getting There 

To get there, take Devil's Gulch Road toward Glen Haven. Turn left after 4.5 miles onto McGraw Ranch Road (dirt road). Drive ~2.0 miles and look for the ranch on your left. Adhere to the parking signs, head across the little bridge towards the ranch and the trailhead. Rabbit Ears Rock is then 1.4 miles west of the McGraw Ranch Trailhead. Turn south at the Rabbit Ears backcountry campsite. The approach is less distinct after you get to the "toilet" sign.

Climbing Season

For the Estes Park Valley area.

This is the obvious, splitter hand/fist crack on the east?? face of Rabbit Ears Rock. It's great climbing, but it's quite short. You can either set up a sling rappel (there is not one there) or you can downclimb the backside. The downclimb has a tricky move but is probably no harder than 5.4 or so....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
