This is the hikers route to the summit of the South Rabbit Ear and is also commonly used as the descent. It climbs up a shady gully on the Northwest side of the rabbit ear, starting from a point near the top of the saddle between South and Middle Rabbit Ears. There are definitely portions where you need your hands free, and where there is pretty good exposure. Also, some basic "common sense" route finding should be applied to sniff out the "easiest" way up (or down).


As you hike up the gully between Middle and South rabbit Ears, there are two prominent gullies leading to the top. The left-hand one is the easier one. The one on the right has some steep 20ft sections of 4rth class.


None required.
