Cruising The Graduate on a rainy fall day

Description 

Approach as for Big Man on Campus. This is the right route. A thin finger jam to start off, with a nice undercling to pop the roof. Watch out for a mini-horn that feels excellent to finish off the roof on. It is so thin, that it may come off soon.

Protection 

2 bolts at the top for the anchor. 3 draws and 1 runner for the climb. Rappell off

Great route. Don't let the start of this one intimidate! It's a great .9 for the average 5.9 leader, the first bolt may look a little high, but it's super to reach.
If those finger crack moves don't look fun, they can be easily skipped.

We were able to rap off the top anchors with a 70m all the way to the ground. A great way to avoid the sketchy down climb.
