The Knife Edge

  • N. Stanton St. and Majestic Mountain Dr. N. Stanton St. and Majestic Mountain Dr. El Paso, TX USA (map)

Traverse the narrowest portion of the Franklin Mountains ridge.

Details: It is about 40’ long and a few inches wide. Crossing it involves crawling on the top. The drop-off on both sides is steep and long. You must make this climb at your own risk. Do not take this hike unless you are in good physical and psychological condition. You may decide not to traverse the knife edge when you get there. You can wait for the others to return so you can complete this strenuous 5-hour roundtrip hike.

Meet at: N. Stanton St. and Majestic Mountain Dr., about a block south of the Pointe condos. MAP

Leader: Karl Putnam
