The White Knob Mountains are a compact group of sedimentary peaks located west of Mackay. The range’s west to east trending crest is about 30 miles in length and 10 miles in width. The East Fork Big Lost River and the Big Lost River almost completely encircle the White Knob Mountains, forming the range’s southern, western, northern and eastern boundaries. Antelope Creek completes the circle along the range’s southern boundary as it flows east from Antelope Pass to the Big Lost River. The range offers a variety of climbing opportunities from the high peaks on the main crest, like Shelly Mountain, to the outliers like Wildhorse Peak and Sheep Mountain. In addition, there are formations like Castle Rock and the White Knob Domes that are of interest to rock climbers.
For more information on the White Knob Domes, check out Ray Brooks report which includes access information. If you have climbed there, please let me know.
