Yearly raptor closures typically begin March 1 and remain in effect until August 1, or until further notice.
East of Glacier Point Apron. Closure includes all routes above 200 feet from the base of the cliff east of Glacier Point Apron including "A Mother's Lament" to the Illilouette Gorge. Half Dome, South Face - Overlooking Little Yosemite Valley. Closure includes all routes from "Autobahn" east to and including "South Face Route."
Wide 4' crack between leaning flake and main wall with good feet all the way. After about 110 feet - you'll find good set of new bolts. If you continue from there to Mr Natural it is better to climb one more short approach pitch. If you going to climb from Apron Jam bolts to the top of Mr. Natural you have to have at least 70m rope- it will be 230 ft pitch or even more.
Right facing flake Just below splitter Mr Natural.
Single from green alien to #4 Camelot. Plus #4 and #5 Friends.
The first comment is extremely inaccurate. The smooth and clean corner provides for an excellent wide laybacking experience and, with the addition of the new bolted belay, is a great pitch to do on its own.

Agree with the above comment. Good climb on clean rock. Make sure to bring a BD #4 and #5 if you don't want to run it out.
I really liked this climbed. We did it as an approach to Mr. Natural, and took two #4's and a #5 - leap frogging them down low. I climbed past the bolted anchors up to the tree for shade and comfort - phew - what a work out!
