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 July 2015, Greg Murphy climbed it and reported:
"Pitch 3 - sketchy, run out climbing with bad bolts.
Basically 150 ft of 5.10 with no gear. Heads up for sure.
Kept hoping the next bolt would be better.
One was flattened, presumably by rock fall.
The belay at the end was missing one bolt and the other was worthless,
so I had to keep going and rig a belay with micro cams and RPs. Old school."
The Golden Bear climbs the left dike.
The NW Face route climbs the right dike, which has an "inverted Y" shape down low.
