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.
Climb the route and you back to the car. No decent like for Rostrum. Morning sun until 11:30 am and than route in the shade to the end of the day. You can see impressive triangle formed by Reality Check 10c and Plumb line on the aproach.
①. P1 corner crack 5.8 - corner which lead to ledge and traverse right to the alcove. It was section were crack diminished and you need to reach via blank face to the ledge. Probably 5.8 if you 6'2". Not me. one 10+ move, 100 ft.
②. Crux Pitch: P2 begin with overhanging wide hands in the corner and we were thinking that crux would be higher where crack be widen to 4 inches . No crux was higher for #5 and #6 size. long , hard, sustained and constantly changing the size. Geometry of the crack demand from you changing your technique every other foot. We stop in the bottom of wide pod 50 ft short to the end of p2 - adding those 50 ft [10b] later to pitch 3. The full pitch as shown on topo 150ft. 10d
③. P3.Started from the ledge- fists , hands some wide 10a, 150ft
④. P4 - 5.8 slot? it felt more like 10a/b
