Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0each rung is 1.5in thick and 15in apart so from the bottom of one rung, to the bottom of the next one is 15 + 1.5 if you add those, for as many rungs there are, then you get the bottom of the last one so to get to the top of it, just add its thickness, or 1.5indw:1442533875798:dw
