Access Issue: Portal Road Closure Details


The obvious, low-angle, stepped cascade that starts right out of the parking lot. There is high water flow here - beware of thin/hollow ice shells over running water. Lots of really easy terrain separated by short steps. This line is usually "bouldered" when it's in, and makes for a good beginner/practice climb. An escape can be made by stepping off either side of the flow onto easy walking ground.


From the end of the loop, the Portal Falls are plainly visible. Walk off either side back down to your car.
