A bit of a steep descent into Crooked, but the lake view is gorgeous and makes up for any challenge. . We ran into a Widji group here where the guide was really having to work to get the group through the portage. We had a good conversation before heading off to motivate our respective groups

This portage isn't too bad, but there was one large rock in the middle that I had a hard time navigating as we went into Crooked. I ended up setting the canoe down and my friend helped lift it back up to me. As mentioned, the landing on the Tarry end is a super cool grove of Cedars, and all boulders.

Our group had a difficult time finding this portage from Crooked. Use the campsites to get a good pinpoint location to help find this one. Like most portages in this area, rocky...rocky...rocky, but not overly demanding.

This portage is fairly tough for one of this length, mainly due to the massive boulder garden on the Tarry lake end. Thus creating difficulty for landing/loading canoe there. Has a moderate climb if heading towards Crooked lake. A small creek flows along side for the duration. Nice grove of cedars on Tarry end.
