Yearly raptor closures typically begin March 1 and remain in effect until August 1, or until further notice.
East of Glacier Point Apron. Closure includes all routes above 200 feet from the base of the cliff east of Glacier Point Apron including "A Mother's Lament" to the Illilouette Gorge. Half Dome, South Face - Overlooking Little Yosemite Valley. Closure includes all routes from "Autobahn" east to and including "South Face Route."
There is a fair amount of loose rock and care should be taken to keep the rope from sending rocks flying. Be sure to place gear high (i.e. not in the back of the corner) and use long slings. This will minimize rope drag and keep the rope clear of loose sections. IMHO, the only reason this climb gets one star is the quality of the view from the nice ledge up top. The quality of the rock and climbing are mediocre at best.
Climbed it today, and both pitches were much longer than the suggested lengths in Supertopo. We found the first to be about 190'-200' (just shy of simul-climbing to reach the bolts), and the second pitch to be about 205', requiring 5 feet or so of simul-climbing. It's easy terrain, but worth noting for those that may be trying to learn, and expecting significantly shorter pitches.
Slings to extend pieces aren't a bad idea.
The top of pitch one has two pairs of bolted anchors. The good, ASCA bolts are about 20 feet left on the large ledge, and have rap rings.
It is possible to rap to the top of Harry Daley from the top of Monday Morning Slab Right anchors with one 60m (98% sure of this). We rapped to the dead tree at the top of the first pitch of Harry Daley with two 60m ropes (could have also reached the rap station directly right of the tree, not the one below however) and down-climbed a few feet to do the Chouinard Crack.
