Rocky landing on the Lower Pauness side. There are board walks through here to make the passage itself quite easy. Choose your portage based upon the weather. I found the concerns about the southern portage to be overstated in dry weather, but I wouldn't mess with it in the rain.

Heavily used easy portage. Avoid the short portage to the south and use this one

Word is that even though this is 5 times the distance, it is easier than the southern portage. Word is true. I prefer this portage to the slippery and steeper 8 rod. 1/5.

The landing on Lower Pauness is a bit rocky, but other than that, this is an easy portage - perhaps preferable to the steep 8 rod portage.
