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 -- Thin, technical 11c climbing leads up past four bolts, finishing with a mantle onto the right-trending ramp. (The first bolt is easy but committing to reach. A .75 C4 will protect the initial moves.) Follow the ramp delicately (a little scary but not too hard) until it connects with a thin finger crack with an old piton that leads more or less straight up to the anchors. Seventy feet. Fairly simple to lead and TR just this first pitch.
P2 -- P2 starts quite far to the right of the P1 anchors, at another set of bolts. Traversing over to these other anchors did not look overly difficult. While I haven’t climbed it, the second pitch follows 11b liebacking and face climbing with a mix of gear and bolts. 100 feet. From there, the climb joins the Sting.
