Description Suggest change

The north-facing, arching roof of Gradute Cliff features at least four climbs: a crack (Walk to School, 5.7) a corner/face climb over a ceiling (The Graduate 5.10) and a pair of sheer slab routes with mixed pro (5.11 and up). The approach is mellow and descent is via rap anchors at the top of each route.

Getting There Suggest change

Graduate Cliff is located in the Willow Springs area on the south side, a couple of hundred feet directly above Ragged Edges Rock. Approach by heading south from the parking areas. Jaunt to the right of Ragged Edges, around and to the top of that crag and then blaze up to Graduate Cliff.
