reporter Portal is running good and is naturally challenging in several ways. The one big rock right at the greatest fall hazard I'm not sure why it's...

 Awesome trail! People mentioned the walking part/cliffs to be scary and overwhelming, but it was just fine (as long as you walk it).
Beautiful views as well, fun technical trail.

 I am terrified of heights but had no problem attempting to do this trail. There was about 4 sections on the highly exposed areas that I walked. I was able to ride most of it until I got down to the very technical switch backs. I really enjoyed making my way down Portal and challenging myself to this level. My goal is to be able to ride everything on this incredible section of trail.
