Celestial Mechanics is another of the classic hard roof cracks at the T-Wall. Of the three I consider the "Triple Crown" this one has the biggest roof. It's at least 25 feet or so. Plenty of length to fall off. It could be the easiest of the three. The invisible chair move halfway out the roof offers a good respite for the final wide pumping section.
This roof is unfortunately most often seeping wet. If it dries out make haste, clean it up, and work it till you send. It may be a while before it's in shape again. I missed my window of opportunity once and I still regret my mistake.
You can start this climb on the thin crack directly below the roof or 15' to the left.
This route is located down and right in the East Blossom sector of the T-Wall. When you hit the biggest roof at the crag you're there.
