It had been raining all morning when we got here. The portage was hilly coming out of Munro, and muddy toward the Mackin end. We avoided any major mishaps though. Was pleasantly surprised to find no significant deadfall despite warning that we should expect some.

Yah, there's hell to pay if it's rained, at all. It starts out hilly from the Munro end. One of us who had two packs went down hard on a rock. The Mack end is a swamp. Three went up to their wastes and the lead guy with the canoe dropped to upper chest. Just be careful and sidestep when necessary.

This portage is most definitely a challenge. After a rapid ascent and descent that could qualify as a black diamond ski hill in winter, we arrived in a floating sphagnum bog. Do not do this portage with multiple packs. I double packed and fell over into the mud behind my brother and another brother fell waist deep in the bog with a canoe. This is a very taxing portage, yet it is short enough to be fun to conquer. If it is raining, do not attempt.
