The crux is turning a thought provoking corner and ascending the headwall. This spur of rock will clean up tremendously with traffic. It reminded me of Wasatch's Devil's Castle routes albeit much shorter. With that said, watch for loose rock for the time being.
Continue up the hill following the faint trail up the scree slope of Upper Portwood Wall. This follows one of the longest portions of the wall. From the road, it appears to be an arete. Walk the base of the wall up and right and look for a detached pillar. Look for a belay piton on a small ledge. If you choose to top rope with a 60m rope, a two bolt belay has been installed about 20 feet up the route past the loose low angle beginning section of the line.
