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.
First pitch, gear at the bottom, run out 5.9 probably PG 13. Second pitch, a few committing moves off the belay, and a funny bolt or two. Use a few TCUs. Third pitch seems harder than 11C. The rock is loose, and some pieces probably came off. Second TAKE ASCENDERS. Runout after the crux. Small to medium cams. I combined the next two pitches. The arete is dangerous-I thought 10C R-take RPs. The final pitch was much easier.
