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.
The West Face is a short walk from the parking lot. "The Water Cracks", "Werner's Wiggle", "Truckin' Drive" and "Rawl Drive" are a few good routes on this face.
The Northwest Face has longer routes and the classic "Crying Time Again".
The East Face is a longer walk to a number of short, poorly protected routes and top ropes.
Here are three photos describing descent options from the summit.
A map of the various descents on Lembert.
So the descent from northwest books can be tricky. Obviously take the ledges left to the slabs. Once on the slabs I have seen people go all the way left (#1). but with double ropes, we down climbed to #2 and rapped one full length rappel to #3. Then walked down as indicated by the line.
Summit, hiking trail comes down from the east side if you don't like the slab descents...
