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 - a very short pitch to get to the base of the corner. There are several variations from easier to harder.
Pitch 2 - climb the right facing corner to a very small ledge and belay(5.9).
Pitch 3 - continue up the corner(5.9) then surmount the roof at the top and belay on a ledge just above.
Pitch 4 - wander up the face following the line of least resistance to a belay below a small roof(5.6). Supposedly there is a bolt up and right, but it can be hard to find.
Pitch 5 - continue up the face to the top.
The descent is a walk-off.
