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 on the low sloping rail and move left to a couple of mediocre crimps. Do a big throw to a sharp but slightly incut crimper flake followed by a couple of easy crimping sequences on decent hands/feet. Core up to the sloper rail, mantle said rail, and don't biff the easy 5th class slab to the top.
There's also a left variation called Thunderhead which holds the same grade. Thunderbird seems the physically harder of the two (though I personally have not sent Thunderhead).
