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 - start about 50 feet right of Euro Trash and follow big, easy ledges up and right to a small right-facing dihedral. Place pro and climb to the top of the dihedral. Climb past two closely-spaced bolts(5.6) then up and slightly left for about 30-40' before traversing straight right back to another small right-facing dihedral and belay(#.5 Camalot, #1 Camalot, small stopper).
Pitch 2 - climb up to a bolt then go a bit right(5.7) and up to a big ledge. The pitch goes more or less straight up, but you will need to zig zag back and forth to link up small ledge systems to get pro and keep the grade moderate. You will find a second bolt about 150' up. From there traverse up and right and belay at a small crack system/ledge(#3 Camalot, 1/2" cam, small stopper).
Pitch 3 - climb up and left on small ledges for 30' to a bolt. Head up right then left to a second bolt. Now, head up and right to a third bolt. Climb up right(5.8) and then left into a groove. Continue up the groove for about 100' to the top.
The last pitch of this climb provides a nice, moderate finish to Euro Trash.
Either rappel Euro Trash of continue up Hobbit Book.
