Eric scoping out the gear and moves to get to the ...


This is the first climb on the upper section of Sunken Treasure. Hike past the lower section and climb up the short gully to reach these routes.

Look for a bolt 20' up on the face just right of an arete. Climb up the face, plug some pro. Ride the arete to that first high bolt. Move up to the ramp and plug some gear out right. Start the funky and exciting traverse out right to gain the bolts around the upper arete.


1 bolt, long runners, and a single rack. Two bolt anchor at the top will get you down with a 60m.
