Portal Road Closure MORE INFO >>>


A fun exercise in knobs, edging, and smearing. A little wandering on pitch two, but still quite good.

Pitch 1: Do the obvious thin crack that slowly opens to hands. At the broken ledge step left and follow the flake to the bolt anchor at it's top. The crack on this pitch tends to occasionally require cleaning. 5.9.

Pitch 2: Easy knob climbing thins down as the climbing moves a little right. From the last really good knobs curve back left on ever decreasing knobs. Thin moves then lead straight up and eventually back left. The climbing gets a little more run in this area. From the last bolt do a longish easy runout to the anchor - on a great fin like knob feature. 12a.


Starts at the toe of the right side of the buttress.


Bolts. Gear to 3 inches.
