Yosemite National Park has yearly closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection March 1- July 15. Always check the NPS website 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 warnings due to current fires, smoke, etc.
The climb begins on the highly featured face to the left of a small (and very dirty) corner. The first bolt was added after the first ascent and is still a 1/4"er (the ASCA doesn't replace retro bolts). The rest of the bolts are bomber.
The climbing is only 5.8 or so getting to the second bolt. Then trend to the left past a couple more bolts and then back right after the 4th bolt to gain a crack system. The start of the crack is steeper and this is the crux. Your pro here unfortunately takes up what would be a useful jam. Then after a few feet the angle lessens and it's easy climbing to the anchor.
Can set up a toprope with a 70m, not sure if a 60m makes it.
