Description 

When the weather is nice, the two Portage Climbing areas offer incredible solitude and beauty, longer routes, and some good rock. The first area, Middle Glacier Canyon has very sharp, sometimes loose rock and gets nice morning sun. Here there are many two pitch climbs. Next, the byron Glacier area is made up of incredibly slick and usually very solid rock. Longer rope helpful. - The Scar


Getting There 

Head south 36 miles past the weigh station on the Sweard Highway and turn left onto Portage Glacier Road. Just after the Portage Railroad Station and the Portage Creeks.
