I'm guessing the name of this route is a reference to the potential for a great route buried here... Unfortunately, the treasure is indeed sunken under layers of kitty litter loose stone, lichen, and moss. If it saw more traffic I think that one day this could clean up to be a nice route... but being an obscure route on an obscure rarely traveled wall, I don't expect that day to be any time soon.
Additionally, the ACSD guidebook is incorrect in its labeling for this route. A 60m rope will leave you dangling 6-7 ft above the mid way anchor if you are lowering in to the route from the top.
