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.
P1: Climb easy slab up and over a long roof left of the start of El Condor, following a prominent wáter streak to the El Condor pitch 1 belay ledge. (5.7 ~100 feet)
P2: Make an easy traverse left to a low bolt below another long roof. Slab up and right to the roof 5.8 with finger size crack in it. Undercling left to the ápex and start face climbing up big knobs up and left to the second bolt, about 25' above the roof in a gold patch (5.8 R/X). Continue up with sustained moderately run-out 5.9+ climbing drifting slighly left then back right on edges and small knobs past 4 more hard to see bolts, the last bolt is just before the belay at the horizontal where polished rock forces a traverse up and right. Gear belay 1/2"-2" cams. (5.10a ~130 feet)
P3: Make a 5.8 move to face climb a short ways up a light colored patch of rock that forms the right side of a shallow depression. Make an improbable traverse right to easier slab climbing and then head for a low angle dihedral with large stacked blocks. No protection on this pitch. (5.8R ~60 feet).
4th class to the top about 100 feet.
