Hold Portal is a 1st-level ritual, introduced in Dragon Magazine article Heroic Tier Rituals. [Dr405]

You magically hold shut one nonmagical door, gate, window, shutter, or similar device. Your Arcana check sets the DC for the Athletics check or Thievery check needed to force the held portal open, which discharges the ritual. A creature with training in Arcana can instead make an Arcana check against the same DC to discharge the ritual.
