Ascent Trip Report

After Monrovia, we hiked over several bumps to Rankin. More steep climbing in loose soil. Footing was a challenge, but the views were spectacular. No shade at all after the towers and plenty of fox tails in the shoes and socks. No register on the peak, but a nice little monument to Edward Rankin. Poles and gators for this one!
