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.
I followed Don Reid's Yosemite guide sections to put this page together.
Bryan G shared these excellent notes on how the crags fit together.
"And here is rough approximation of what the left/right sorting would be. First, the north side starting at El Portal running east:
Narrow Escape Cliff
Short Circuit Boulder
Finger Lickin' Area
Cookie Cliff, The
Cookie Sheet, The
Wildcat Falls & Above the Cookie
This and That Cliff
Reed's Pinnacle Area
Five and Dime Cliff
Mojo Tooth Area, The
Last Resort Cliff
Then the south side as you move down canyon:
Wawona Tunnel West
Jungle Gym, The
Hand Out Cliff
It's not a perfect geographical representation because I tried to clump some areas together which have a similar approach. This and That, Generator Station, and New Diversions are all approached from the 140 so I think it's better to list them in a sequence, even though Goldrush is technically between them. Hope this helps."
