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.
Pitch 1 - climb the discontinuous finger crack(5.7) that is first pitch of Myopia to a two-bolt anchor with quick links and chain links.
Pitch 2 - climb straight up past six bolts to a two bolt anchor with quick links and chain links. Gear up to 2" can be found between a few of the bolts and keeps the distance between protection reasonable. The first bolt is near the right edge of the overlap above the belay.
Rappel the route with two ropes. Both raps are about 150'.
