Several decades ago this was a standard part of our lab work, but there was/were specialist interneg film(s) from Kodak for exactly this purpose - they were discontinued years ago of course.
Use about a 100C and 50 M in your enlarger to simulate daylight and use about a 1/2" exposure at F22. This should make a nice 3x4 onto Portra 4x5 from a 35mm.
For process, pull using a 3' development time or a 2' 45" development time to reduce contrast.
