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.
Face climb to the right of the 5.9 face crack variation to the first pitch of Nutcracker. Starts just right of the right side ramp start of that variation. Start below a body size incut feature 60’ or so up the wall and follow features up towards it while cleaning leaves and lichen out to get some gear. Find the bolt below the incut and after arriving climb out right of it to another vertical feature for gear before climbing past 2 bolts to a ledge. Continue up left then right using gear to a ledge with a tree. Belay and/or climb up on the right past 2 more bolts to the ledge at the end of the easy ramp of Nutcracker. Enjoyable climbing but not very clean rock for the area.
