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.
Grade and difficulty from the Roper guide, whose description of the climb starts “Rope up below a very prominent, left-facing open book on the right side of the face. From the top of the book…”
My personal thoughts on the book itself are that if you climb the book when it is dry, channel the spirit of 1968 (no cams & no sticky rubber), believe that the difficulty is 5.9 PG13, bring double ropes, a modern rack, and bail gear/slings then you will have no reason to be disappointed.
I gave it an extra star for historical value.
I was so happy I had a comfort rack.
