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.
In January of 2018, the existing route “Tennessee Strings” was cleaned and it’s anchor bolts were modernized. Pitches 2 and 3 were established shortly thereafter.
P1 “Tennessee Strings” (12a, 50’) What this pitch may lack in length, it makes up for in quality. Technical and powerful tiptoeing around a thin crack. Liebacks, side-pulls, crimps, and a few finger-locks! Vertical ballet!!
P3 “Tennessee Wall” (10a, 100’) The crux move (10a) comes off the ledge at the first bolt. Continue to traverse left and climb up cool low-angle face features clipping more bolts to a roof. Plug-in some finger size pieces on the roof and traverse right to a dirty blocky ramp and a manzanita tree anchor at the top. (6 bolts)
