Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

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.

climbed this over labor day weekend, if you bailed off some interesting gear I could try and get it back to you. What happened? Sep 9, 2015
