Access Issue: 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: (5.10b 80 ft) Climb stone groove for P1 to chain anchor. Then go around to the corner for the second pitch.
P2: (5.9 70ft) Climb offwidth chimney up the notch walking up a #5 and into an enclosure at the top of the pillar to some rap slings. You may want to stop and belay here due to drag. Then come out and climbers left to a more defined crack protected by a #6. Top out and continue right to bolted anchors by a slung tree.
