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.
Anyways the left side route starts up some flakes and stuff with sort of iffy pro. The climbing isn't hard though, as long as nothing breaks on you. Overall the climbing easier than it looks thanks to some good features on either side of the corner and after the first 20 ft you get some good pro. This climb can be a fun warm up for some of the harder routes in the area.
Rap with one rope from a bolted anchor at the top of the pinnacle. The bolts at the anchor are good.
