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.
Although the route is bolted, it is not really a "sport" climb, as there are only 4 protection bolts in 65 feet. A fall before clipping the second bolt would likely result in a ground fall. As such, I have given it a "PG-13" rating.
If you are not up for leading the route, it is possible to scramble up the gully to the left with a section of 4th class terrain, do one single rope rap down to the anchors. One more rap gets you to the ground.
