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.
Rappel 75 feet from trees into the notch between the South Rim and the Rostrum. Establish a belay on a comfortable ledge. Step boldly right onto a rounded arete, with 1,500 feet of air beneath your heals. Take a moment to enjoy the incredible exposure, then jam your way up and left to the top of the Rostrum.
Unless you are using a tyrolean to get back to the rim, rappel 70 feet from bolts back into the notch. Climb an easy, right-facing corner back to the rim.
