Portal Road Closure Details


This route is in the center of the formation. It starts about 50 feet to the right of El Gaucho.

Scramble up some blocks to a high first bolt. Climb up and left past 5 bolts and then traverse right. Don't keep going left here or you'll end up on El Bolo. There is also a much harder variation to the right of this line called El Polo Loco (5.12a).

Climb up easier slab past a couple more bolts to a roof. Pull the roof on big holds, then up more slab to the anchors.

Rap with 2 ropes, or swing right to the anchors on Cuban Slide to get down with 1 rope.


A few pieces to 2" and 9 bolts. Bring some runners to help with rope drag.
