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.
The first pitch heads up steep large knobs to a bolt about 25-30 feet up, serious 5.7. Continue up and right past a second bolt and onward to some small gear. Traverse left to a third bolt and back right past two closely spaced bolts. The crux knobs can be mossy and dirty above the 5th bolt.
Either traverse straight left at the 6th bolt to the last bolt of Dark Side of the Force and continue left to that belay (recommended) or mantle up to a gear belay with poor anchors.
Second pitch heads up and left to the top with virtually no protection (1 retro-bolt added by FFA team) on easy 5th class.
