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.
Pitch one is rarely ever climbed, but looks pretty wild and fun. Most opt for the Lost in America start (C3)
Most of this route is pretty tame with a few peckers here and there
The fun is that you can choose mix and match this route with TTrip as they link at the top of the 4th pitch and the 7th.
The 6th pitch is the crux, with a rivet off the anchor, a cam in a wreched expanding flake and then several hook placements traversing left until you can finally sink some bomber pins in an endless nailing corner.
According to the super topo pitch seven is A1, but it is far more difficult than all the other A3/C3 pitches on the route (except pitch 6)
The Super topo is a little off, but once you are on the route, its pretty simple to follow.
Enjoy! sorry i left the description out for so long!
