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 route climbs into, out of and back into the prominent right facing dihedral on The Shark.
Pitch 1 - grovel up a wide crack using a belly crawl, if necessary(5.6). Enter and continue up the dihedral for a short way and belay.
Pitch 2 - continue up the dihedral to a fixed pin. Traverse out and right(crux) onto the face and up to a bolt which seems oh, so far away. Head straight up to the dihedral and belay.
Pitch 3 - continue up the dihedral(5.8 hands) until it is advisable to traverse right(bolt). Continue up to a two-bolt belay that is shared with Corn Hole and Bushes and Buckets.
