Knob Mountain is a ridge hump on the Continental Divide just east of the Red Conglomerate Peaks. Though it has a gentle summit area, its north face is wickedly steep and rugged. I’m not sure how it acquired the name “Knob Mountain” as it doesn’t look like a knob or have knobby rock. This climb is part of a four-peak odyssey that includes Cobble Mountain (9,996 feet), Knob Mountain (9,762 feet), Red Conglomerate Peaks North (10,106 feet) and Red Conglomerate Peaks South (10,250 feet).

Same as for Cobble Mountain. This is the second leg of a four-peak journey.
East Ridge, Class 2
From the 9,540-foot connecting saddle with Cobble Mountain, scramble west up an easy scrub-and-scree slope to the gentle summit of Knob Mountain.
West Face, Class 2
From the summit, descend west down a somewhat steep scrub/sagebrush slope to a small saddle at 9,260 feet. This saddle connects Knob Mountain to Red Conglomerate Peaks North. This concludes the second leg of a four-peak journey. Red Conglomerate Peaks North is up next.
