An alternate way down the Hurl, this is also know as the Western Portal. Starts with a gentle ridge ride, and then plunges down the SW face of the bluff with steep and loose switchbacks. Rideable, but not as fun as staying on the Hurl itself. As a climb, it would be pure hike-a-bike until reaching the top of the bluff (Dwight Robertson).
