Description

The South rabbit Ear is the smallest of three towers at the ridge of the Rabbit Ears group. Despite being smaller than the Middle and North Rabbit ears, the South Rabbit Ear offers a summit that can be accessed by adventurous hikers, and often is. There are also a number of routes on the myriad of faces which facet the peak. It provides a great vantage point to view routes on the Middle rabbit Ear's southern wall as well as looking out over big windy canyon to the south.

When viewed from the East side of the Organs (from Aguirre springs) there are a number of large faces which have only begun to be explored such as Pyramid of South Rabbit Ear.

Getting There

Most of the routes are approached from the west via the Topp Hut rd and the Rabbit Ears Canyon. This approach is mostly over open rock but includes a fair amount of bush-whacking, especially when passing by The Citadel or during the final approach. The final approach varies depending on whcih route you intend on doing. If taking the hiking route to the top or any of the routes on the West Face, one should approach via the gully between Middle and South Rabbit Ears. If doing the routes around the south Face, once should continue up the Rabbit Ears canyone all the way to the saddle between the Rabbit Ears Massif and South Rabbit ear, and then descend to the route. It is also possible to approach from Aguirre springs as for Pyramid of South Rabbit Ear.
