There are two portages between Other Man and the lake to the north. I took a bad portage in the fall of 2014, and the north end of it was some terrible mud. I scouted out an alternative!!! There is a campsite to the SW of the main portage, and there is a goat path portage from that campsite to the lake to the north. No super steep section, no mud. Trust me, find it and use it! I'm pretty sure it IS the portage shown on Paddle Planner, and it probably IS the campsite shown on Fisher F-19 map, but not the campsite shown on PP. I'm going through in Fall 2020 and will get a lat/long for you.

I was a northern tier guide for 2 seasons. Generally I took this portage to get into the man chain. The initial climb is steep and can be slick. But the real gold of this portage is the mud pit on the other side of that wall of rocks. This is a great place to get pictures of people as they fall in the mud, really fun memories here :) ... I'd highly recommend swimming in Other Man lake at the portage end. It's a very clear lake.

This portage is challenging, but the fact that it is merely 29 rods makes it a fun challenge. It ends (if going NE through the Man Chain) with an extremely steep drop. If it recently rained a ton, like it did on my trip, the end of the portage right before the steep drop is completely mud and muck. We had to balance on thin logs for a while, so a gymnastics background might come in handy in the case of major rains.
