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.
P1: Climb the first pitch of West Crack. 5.9.
P2: Climb through the roof of West Crack's second pitch, then continue up the OW for a ways before departing the crack and moving left at a bolt to a bolted belay. 5.8.
P3: Climb a splendid rising traverse pitch across the beautiful face. This pitch passes ten bolts or so and generally aims for a ledge on the left margin of the wall. Be careful to follow the right line -- there is another route (Weenie Roast) that intersects this one and you don't want to stray onto it. Belay on this ledge with gear and a lone bolt. 5.9.
P4: Climb the incredible, exposed arete with gear and bolts up through the hanging dihedral. Belay at bolts over the roof.
P5: An easy romp to the top.
