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--goes up the corner, surmounting a 2' bulge 3/4 of the way up, 5.8. Belay on a good ledge. 100'.
p2--Continue up the corner. The wide crack gets funkier, resulting in easier climbing, but harder to protect. I wouldn't call it run out though. 150', 5.7. Ends on large ledge.
The route continues up for a couple more pitches, but we didn't do them, opting to do the slab route Goldmember instead. There is no easy way down from the ledge atop p2, so you either need to continue up, or leave gear to rap. (you can rap if you do Goldmember.) Please add to this description if you've done the entire route.
