Description

The Rib Cage approach trail leads directly to the base of this appropriately-named rib. From there, one has the choice of either immediately climbing onto the spine of Long Rib or else turning right and traversing into the Long Rib/Knife Rib gully, where the Long Rib south wall can be accessed. Based on limited scouting missions, this rib appears to have great potential for fun climbing. Ingraham's guide describes a climb traversing the entire length of the Long Rib, suggesting that it entails between 12 and 15 pitches before finishing up on the Rabbit Ears Massif summit web.nmsu.edu/~amato/ingrahamguide/RE_Massif/RE_Massif_master.html
Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas Details
