This is the striking finger crack on the East face.

P1: (5.10-, 80’) Start in dirty cracks on East face. Climb up and left on good gear to a small roof. Hand traverse under the roof for a wild exit into the finger crack. Follow the finger crack past a tree to a nice belay ledge. This pitch is covered in moss and lichen but is surprisingly fun!

P2: (5.8, 80’) Climb the clean finger crack as it slowly widens to hands. If this pitch was anywhere near a road, it would be an all-time classic!

Descent: From the summit, scramble down to a minor summit with webbing. A single 70m rope will get you down.


East face of Portal Peak.


Nuts, 2 x Red C3-#3, 1 x #4 & #5
