Afton to Cleffe (or Clefte)

Boundary Waters portage
Posted by: ymca camper
Season/Year: 01
Water Level: average
Length: 20 rods
Rating: difficult
Additional Perspectives:

Portage Description:
Very hard portage. It is at the end of the Frost River and avoids some rapids. Because the sides of the river are so steep, the portage goes straight up. At this point you see the lake below you. Very steep with small rock ledges.

Lake after portage: Cleffe (or Clefte)
Known campsites: None at all
Lake Description:

Not very interesting. I think it is a 100 rod portage from here to Mora Lake which has some nice campsites.
