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.
Once past the River Wall, continue about 10 minutes more on the faint trail through the woods to the start of a low angled golden slab that faces southeast (see beta photo). Hike up this low angle slab that seems to take a while, northish to the west face of Dark Side Dome. Approach time is about 30-45 minutes and very pretty. There is a small lake at the base. This is at GPS 11 S 286220 4195690 NAD 36 CONUS.
