Yosemite National Park has yearly closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection March 1- July 15. Always check the NPS website 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 warnings due to current fires, smoke, etc.
It ends somewhat abruptly in a short headwall. It might be worth exploring options to push the route further up the wall. Extending the crux might make for a very hard pitch, or working out right from atop P4 might be an easier option.
P1: 12c Two distinct, technical cruxes. The second can be wet in the spring.
P2: 11A Short pitch up to a belay on top of a small tree.
P3: 11B Up a gritty corner, and through some fun, juggy climbing on the left side of the long roof.
P4: 12A/B Short pitch up and right, with a tricky long move, and short technical corner.
(Linking P3 and P4 would avid the route's least comfortable belay.)
P5: 13C Another shorty. Cool technical climbing up a corner leads to some excellent rock, and pumpy lock-offs. Lower back to the belay.
Rap easily with a 70 meter.
