Portal Road Closure Details
Due to rockfall, duration unknown
DescriptionThis route is an exercise in small hold crimping. Start down and right of the obvious knob low in the center of the face. Acquire the knob via an entertaining sequence (sideways dyno off thin crimps.) At the third bolt do some tricky crux crimping to obtain the lower right end of the flake/small roof. Follow this feature up and left. A couple more hard moves turn the small roof and lead to great patina edging. Easier face leads up and right past a few more bolts to a bolted anchor.
While most of the rock on this route is quality the crux sections are on some slightly friable edges. Consequently the character of this route has changed a few times and could possibly continue to do so.
