If you can't line through the creek, the portage from Fente into Afton begins at the bottom of a granite slope about 25 feet long. In retrospect, it would have been easier to hand packs up. I just put it on and climbed (part way on hands and knees to keep from going over backward). Happily, its a short portage.

This maybe short but don't let it fool you. You have to be part billy goat. There is a climb that you must pass your gear up about 20 feet. Maybe in low water you could walk the creek around but this wasn't an option on my trip
