2015 Raptor Closure at Bridge Creek Wall area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Located on the left side of the Pearly Gates area, Celestial Groove heads up the crack/corner to the right of Poison Balance (5.11d, some bolts). It starts by pulling through a bulgy section and then follows a small corner with an excellent crack. The bulgy start is definitely the crux and the rest of the route is great cruiser jamming, overall a lot of fun.

Protection 

Standard trad rack (to 2" will suffice). There are bolts/rap station at the top and you can lower off with a 60-m rope.
