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.
Walk off left.
If not up for leading, it would be easy to rig a top-rope off a tree by scrambling up and left from the base of the route.
There is also a fun 10b variation that can be led or top-roped. From the base, climb the left side of the triangular flake, traversing left and then back right around a flake resembling the state of Texas. After working back to the right, join up with the main route. If top-roping, a directional is recommended to prevent a big swing from the left end of the "Texas flake".
