Portal Road Closure Details
Due to rockfall, duration unknown
DescriptionStart on the far right side of the big ledge at the base of Candlelight. Have the belayer clip an anchor bolt for Bobo's. Leave yourself (the belayer) about 10ft of slack so you can see your climber.
Climb out right off the big ledge over a small mogul and clip a bolt, up and right again, then straight up (5-6 more bolts) to an anchor. A great pitch.
Second pitch is not bad, but pretty easy at about 5.7 (5-6 bolts). It is possible to do another pitch and top out (no bolts).
This route was established Sept 12, 2003 - the day Johnny Cash died.
