Access Issue: 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.
You will be hard pressed to find anyone who has done this route as well as find anyone willing to give it a go. This is an adventure route. Probably the dirtiest climb I have ever done but the climbing is classic and well protectable. There are two starts. The right hand start has been cleaned up a bit and most of the loose rock is now gone. After a long pitch it ends at 2 new 3/8" bolts with chains. The left starts out nice, although vegetated, but the rock quality gets very poor at the small roof. There is a three pin anchor below the roof in questionable rock which I recommend you climb past and continue to the same bolted station as the right variation.
This is the giant left facing corner immediately left of Stone Quest.
micro cams to a #6 Camalot and I highly recommend a brush, which I did not have.
