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.
P1 climb an initially low-angle very-open book, maybe 150 feet. P2 climb the markedly steeper corner above (crux) on good rock. P3 up and right on blocky ledges; weave up through blocks along the summit ridge to the top.
Descent: Downclimb/downlead back to a walkable ledge system that leads to hiking on the west side. If you brought all your stuff with you, you won’t need to go back to the toe of the south buttress. (If you just want to bag the peak, climb up the down-climb from the south end of the ridegetop.)
