Description

Portraits stands two routes downhill from Lady of the Lake and on the next most distinct turret. You pass another good roof problem on the way. Use the fixed rope to scramble down. Portraits is the right of two routes on this turret. It can be done by entering from the left at 5.12b, but this seems improbable, and I have found the right hand start at 5.11d to make more sense. My guess is that most climbers will enter from the right hand start. Either way converges at the first bolt. A series of seams and overlaps leads to a final 5.11d crux move 30 feet from the anchor. Some good holds lie rather far to the right, so if the going gets thin, look around the corner. Enough said. Great route and worth three stars for continuity and quality.

Protection

QDs only. Just about 90 feet, a bit less perhaps, but a dozen QDs and something for the double bolt anchor at the top is all you need.
