In 2018, the state of California will be hosting the world’s largest open-air rock climbing event, which will run for the first time from May 3-6 at Yosemite National Park.
But as the city and state prepare to celebrate the first anniversary of the historic event, many of its attractions have changed.
The new Golden Gate Bridge is scheduled to open in 2018, while the iconic Tower of Terror will open in 2019.
And, according to some estimates, some 2,000 visitors a day will make the trek to Yosemite Park this year.
Here are the key things to know about the annual rock climbing season, which opens this weekend.
The Yosemite Valley has hosted the world-famous event for the past decade, and it’s a key reason that the city is hosting the event for just the third time in its history.
The new Golden Gates bridge will open at the end of the month and the Tower of Death is scheduled for a second start in 2019, while a new attraction will open next year called The Lost City.
The other two events are already underway, including the iconic Rock of Ages at Yosemite’s top of the Tower and the legendary Tower of Power at Grand Teton National Park’s summit.
Tourists will also be able to check out some of the country’s most stunning mountains, including Mt.
Whitney, the world leader in peak glacier melt, and Sequoia, the largest known mountain in North America.
Tower of Terror has been closed for the last three years after it was found to be unsafe, but it will reopen this summer with a new climbing wall that’s expected to be safer.
There will be three routes up the Tower.
The Lost City, the last of the three Yosemite Valley attractions, will reopen in 2019 after being closed for years due to safety concerns.
The area surrounding the Lost City was declared closed to all visitors in March 2018 because of a spike in incidents involving visitors.
Trouble on the other side of the world?
The famous Golden Gate Gorge, located at the southern tip of Yosemite, is slated to open its gates for the 2018 season.
The Gorge will be open from April 2 to October 6, and visitors can visit in person from April 8 to May 4, 2019.
The park will also hold a two-day rock climbing competition from April 15 to May 19.
The world-class attractions at the top of Yosemite’s iconic Tower are already in place, but the Lost Valley will be the final attraction before it opens for the 2019 season.
It will be in a special area reserved for Yosemite guests only.
The Golden Gate will reopen for a few weeks in late 2019 to open up its backcountry and get some snowfall under control.
Yosemite will also host a series of open-water races.
Tourism officials say the Lost Lake, Yosemite’s famous rock formation, will be closed for a short period of time.
The popular Grand Trestle will be shut down for a while to allow the new rock wall to be installed.
The park will open the Golden Gate on Oct. 1.
But there are a few other major changes coming to the state.
The state will be expanding the state’s park system and the Yosemite National park will be re-opened.
California will host the first major outdoor sporting event in the country this year, the 2019 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.
The Big Sky Conference men’s basketball tournament will return for the 20th time this season, and the new arena for the event will be located in Boulder, Colorado.
The California High Sierra will also expand.
The region will host a major outdoor event in 2019: the annual Calvary Fireworks show.
The show will be held from Oct. 3-7, 2019, and there will be fireworks throughout the event.
Tourist arrivals at Yosemite will rise sharply.
More than 12 million visitors have visited the park since 2001, and those numbers are expected to increase this year as more people flock to the park.
The state will spend $7.5 billion on tourism over the next decade, which is expected to bring in more than $4.5 trillion.
The city of San Francisco will host its first major public holiday this year: Pride Day.
The annual Pride Parade will be canceled this year for a couple of days in 2020, but other events will still take place in the park this year and in the 2020 season.
TourISM will be opening its doors in 2019 and 2019 will be Pride Day in the United States.
The largest indoor solar-power installation in the world will be inaugurated at the Golden State’s tallest skyscraper.
The iconic tower will reopen and the iconic rock wall will reopen next year.
The towers will be built by the Los Angeles-based company SolarCity, and they will be connected to a grid that will provide power to the entire state.
The City of Los Angeles will be a key partner in the project, which was originally proposed in 2002, and is expected, if all goes as planned, to be completed
