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.
Start by climbing a tree to clip a rusty 1/4" bolt. Then climb straight up the steep face past several bolts which are all at least 3/8" and in better shape. Most of the climbing is surprisingly moderate and there are a lot of really juggy holds. The crux is at mid-height and involves a big reach out left. A large wingspan will maybe make the climb feel easy for the grade. At the last bolt I traversed right to finish up the final crack on Gash. It also looked like it's maybe possible to finish more directly and to the left of the bolt.
This is a sport climb but the bolts are spaced 10 ft apart in some places. It can also be toproped after leading Gash.
