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.
A fantastic mix of face and thin cracks. Less strenuous than Stoner's Highway. The route weaves it way up thin features. The protection is generally adequate with a slight runout on the 5.7 traverse off the first set of bolts P1 or half way up P1, depending on how you do it. Overall, this is one of the finest 5.10a routes that Yosemite has to offer.
Just left of the DNB.
Nuts and cams. I think I used a couple micros down low.
