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.
Pitch 1 climbs the beautiful crack to the left of The Elevator Shaft.
Pitch 2 continues up the crack for 30' or so then traverses under a roof (5.10c - the crux of the whole route) for 25 feet to a belay.
Pitch 3 climbs the 5.10a lieback pitch of Twilight Zone to top out.
Run laps on pitch one with a single 70m rope, or a single 60m rope if the belay is bumped up to the base of the Elevator Shaft.
