Description

This is the southernmost rib of the Rib Cage. It also forms the southern boundary of Rabbit Ears Massif just north of Big Windy Canyon. The best climbing rock is probably along the south wall, if not along the rib spine itself, but a verdict awaits further exploration. A few routes on Knife Rib are described in Ingraham's guide web.nmsu.edu/~amato/ingraha… Due to the geometry of the area, the south wall of Knife Rib is likely a winter-only climbing destination.
Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas Details

Getting There

Follow the approach instructions for the Rib Cage area. Once it appears feasible and appropriate for the goal, leave the approach trail and bushwack SW toward the Knife Rib. If going for the spine of the rib, head up into the gully between Long and Knife Rib. If going for the south walls, leave the Rib Cage approach trail before getting into steep, rocky terrain. In the future, proper extensions of the Rib Cage trail will be added to lead directly to climbable sections of the Knife Rib.
