That's exactly where it is right around the parking pullout

"El Portal Road (continuation of Highway 140 into Yosemite) will remain closed through this weekend due to a rockfall. The only access to Yosemite National Park is via Highways 41 and 120 from the west.The large rockfall, which occurred around noon yesterday, caused about 4,000 tons/60,000 cubic feet of rock to fall. About 150 feet of road is covered in 15 to 20 feet of debris; part of the road's paved surface and retaining wall is damaged."
