Came through in the rain, and didn't have any trouble with this short portage.

There is quite a bit of elevation gain west to east through this chain and this portage is no exception. This one rises quickly before dropping back down to Powell. These portages also seem to see less traffic so there's a decent amount of encroaching brush to contend with and we found a few ticks on ourselves after this chain.
