Description

The Ranch Hand offers featured granite following incipient cracks for two to three pitches of climbing. The descent is via a moderate downclimb and walk-off on the north side of the formation.

Getting There

Follow the Climber Access trail as described on the Staunton Rocks page. From the Meadow Dome, head west. Go past the Bombardier Dome and the Whistle Pig, and look for the obvious large dome on your right (signed "Ranch Hand Climbing").
