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.
Start sitting on a good rail. Make some moves past a really thin crimp to reach another good rail. Then reach out right to a hold on the arete and then up to the top.
The sit start will feel scrunched if you're tall and the crimp move is sort of painful, but the upper portion of the problem is classic climbing. The rock is really blank except for a handful of edges which are just where you need them for the problem to go. Perfect landing... unless a tourist pooped under it.
The V2 arete climb to the left is pretty fun too.
