Access Issue: 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.
This seems to be the combo favored by most, linking up the better parts of Errett Out and Bit By Bit.
P1 coincides mostly with P1 of Errett Out, passing its low two-bolt anchor at 70 ft and continuing up the bolted face to the second-to-last bolt. At that point, instead of heading up to the last bolt of that pitch, veer up and right onto a right-slanting ramp to connect to the P1 bolted anchor of Bit By Bit.
P2 goes up the entire P2 of Bit By Bit to that pitch's bolted rap anchor. Either rap here, or continue up the 5.8 P3 of Bit By Bit (which is indicated as P3 of Loud & Obnoxious here on MP) to another bolted rap anchor.
Rap twice using two ropes down Loud & Obnoxious if no one is on that. To alleviate congestion, there's also another rap anchor (not shown in SuperTopo) visible about 80-90 ft below and to climber's right of the Bit By Bit P2 anchor, from which a long rap with two 70 m ropes would reach the base (two 60's might not reach the deck, but should reach the 4th class start of L&O). The project anchor at about 2/3 of the way up P1 of L&O and to climber's right as indicated in SuperTopo has only hangers and no rap rings or chains. Also possible to continue climbing beyond P3 of BBB to the top and do the long walkoff.
Bolts mostly, single rack to 1.5", bolted rap anchors.
