Idyllic landing on Kekekabic end, sloped and stony on Strup end. Very tough climb out of Kekekabic and the hiking trail intersects near the Strup Lake end.

We fought the wind coming across Kek, this portage proved quite the challenge. The Kek end will really give a workout. We made it over and kept on trekking.

You'll feel the burn on this portage. Tough portage from Kek to Strup.

This portage sucked. The climb is fairly significant and certainly woke me up after the beautiful early morning paddle out of Kek. It just goes up and up. In my GoPro footage I can be heard saying "I could go the rest of my life and never do this portage again and be happy with that". lol.
