Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details

Description

Sitting just above Ragged Edges, the Graduate is probably the second most obvious climb in the area. A huge right facing corner with a beautiful streaked slab to its right and rough white rock to its left, the corner literally begs to be climbed.

Belay about 20' below the corner and head up across semi-easy 5th class terrain the base of the corner. Some tricky moves under a small roof lead to the corner proper. Follow the corner until a large roof is reached. From here, step left around the corner and climb up easy terrain to a two-bolt anchor.

A single rope rappel will bring you back to the base.

Protection

Bring at least 2 #3 camalots or equivalent, but 3 would be better. Also bring a big cam for down low. Other than that, a couple of hand sized pieces should suffice.
