We were all disappointed in having to portage Dagger also, it looked very sweet at 5.5'. One log was gone by the AM (Sunday), but the other seemed to be pinned in there quite well. I wouldn't put money on it clearing itself, but time will tell.
The rest of the trip was not uneventful unfortunately, got a serious infection in a finger and the possibility of flying out was day by day for a while. Ultimately it all worked out (bring a ring cutter, diamond file, and cephalexin antibiotics in your med kit) and the last day was a hoot. Weber was awesome at 6.5'!!!!
