Portal Road Closure Details
Due to rockfall, duration unknown
DescriptionThis is perhaps the most striking line on Roadwork Wall, and it is a fun and relatively moderate route. The large right-facing corner will provide you with shade in the afternoon.
Pitch 1: Up a fun lieback which turns into a wide funky slot near the end. Belay on the big brushy ledge.
Pitch 2: Blocks and flakes in the corner with some awkward bulges. Belay on large wedged chockstone.
Pitch 3: Squeeze up the chimney until it starts getting too tight. Then find a foothold and come out of the chimney and into a lieback. After a ledge is a large roof. Place gear up under the roof (with long runners) and then slab climb to the right to avoid the roof. Above you keep traversing right and finish up a weakness in a steep chossy headwall.
Hike off to the left (west) and down a 3rd class gully back to the base of the cliff.
