The Rabbit Ears, although not a mountain in the classical sense gives a climber a good alpine rock experience. Two volcanic plugs push out of the earth and look like rabbit ears when viewed from certain directions. Several climbs per year occur to the summit, but the lower apron has many rock climbs. Routes range from 5.4 to 5.11.
This is a must see and do!!!
