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.
Don't be intimidated by the appearance of the start, it's not as burly as it looks and it's more fun than the crack on the left. The first wide pod goes without any real offwidth moves.
Higher you will find opportunity for some true offwidth moves, though my partner managed to climb it with only a cowboy arete move and some shoulder jamming...
Save at least half your wide gear for the top. I found the Crux to be the wide section at the top, while my (shorter) partner found exiting the lower wide pod to be the crux.
