Rabbit Ear\'s Endless Enigma
This is what the Rabbit Ears (Oak Creek Spire) looks like as you approach from the northwest. There's an obvious optical illusion here; the left ear of the bunny rabbit is actually LOWER than the bunny's right ear.

The West Crack of the standard route is visible on the bunny's left ear.

After the climber ascends (the crack) on the north, there is a so-called Leap of Faith or Point of No Return, where the climber must perform a maneuver to land on the opposite ear.

Luckily, I found an incredible video on YouTube showing this maneuver:

PLEASE - DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS AT HOME.
