Abstract: Let $f$ be a $C^3$ circle endomorphism of degree one with exactly two critical points and negative Schwarzian derivative. Assume that there is no real number $a$ such that $f + a$ has a unique rotation number equal to $\frac{p}{q}$. Then the same holds true for any $\frac{p'}{q'}$ such that $\frac{p}{q}$ stands above $\frac{p'}{q'}$ in the Farey tree and can be related to it by a path on the tree.
