Description:

Obvious roof a few minutes from trailhead. Requires good footwork and small finger pockets will get you under the roof. A good reach to a horn in between two boulders will get you over the roof. East top rope setup. NOTE (added by da5id): Last time i was climbing this the horn was way loose, so a friend of mine rappelled down and kicked it off. Just for the hell of it, he returned it to Jack Rankin NOTE (added by WIvanoff) And people had been successfully pulling on that loose horn for many years....

3 out of 5 stars rankin's roof

roof gave me some trouble
i'm fairly new to climbing, but i've climbed a bunch of 5.8's and this roof problem is a lot more difficult than any other 5.8 i've done, seeing that there used to be a horn above the roof, i'd say it's a bit more difficult.
