Portal Road Closure Details
Due to rockfall, duration unknown
DescriptionThis route was established by climbers who placed the bolts on aid, and who did not free it. The pitch was later free climbed and the bolts in the upper half re-arranged so they followed the line and could be clipped on lead, without the crux being clipping the bolts.
Start by scambling up the right side of the pillar. Step back left and start clipping bolts. The bolts on the lower half were left as placed by the original party. Good climbing on good knobs characterizes the first half of the pitch. At about the halfway point the knobs thin down and start to peter out. Do somewhat thinner and enjoyable climbing past a few bolts. A final sequence to obtain the flake coming in from the right requires a little thought.
