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.
After finishing the third pitch of OZ, continue as follows:
P4: Climb up off the belay through some very powerful laybacks and underclings to a stance. The climbing eases here until a bolted belay is reached below some hanging blocks. 5.10d.
P5: Runner your gear very well and still expect to deal with rope drag. Continue traversing under the roof with a few cruxy downclimbing sections of 5.10c or so. One can belay off of bad gear or at an uncomfortable stance, but it is perhaps better to turn the roof at it's end and continue to the top. Keep in mind this involves climbing a long passage of 5.5 knobs without much gear. An awesome, exposed conclusion to the climb. 5.10c.
