Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions.
Yosemite National Park has yearly closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection March 1- July 15.
Always check the Yosemite website Peregrine Closure page at nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/… for the most current details and park alerts, and to learn more about the peregrine falcon, and how closures help it survive. This page also shares closures and warning due to current fires, smoke, etc.
In 1999 Peter Terbush was killed by a massive rock fall while his two partners escaped with lacerations.
With that warning in mind Glacier Point offers moderate classic routes with a very short approach, and shouldn't be missed.
For the Grack: From the Happy Isles trailhead parking lot walk up the path towards Little Yosemite. After about five minutes you'll see the Nature Center to the right of the trail. Shortly before the Nature Center follow a fairly good path to the right towards the slabs with a sign labeled "Fen". This will take you across wood platforms and up through the forest, follow a drainage left to the base of the wall just right of the Grack. The approach from the trail turn off takes about ten minutes.
