This is a nice little block with three routes on it. It's in the shade most of the day--it faces east and is in a shady gully. The two routes on the east face are very slightly overhanging. The rock is really, really solid limestone of very good quality.

Two of the routes here are fun enough, but Blood Ruby (5.11d) is the real gem.

Getting There 

Tresure Island is located in the gully that leads up to The Projects. Approach as you would for The Zoo (that is, go up the canyon to the first wooden bridge. Don't cross the stream but continue on the right (south) side of the stream for about 100 feet. Turn right up a gully and follow the path. Instead of taking a right to The Zoo, continue straight up the gully). Continue past the beautiful Uncle Tom's Cabin for a few more minutes. Soon you'll see Treasure Island on the right side of the gully.

Wow! What a climb! It starts off easy enough for several moves. Then you have to make a deadpoint (technical crux) with your left hand from good jugs and crimpers to a tiny little crimp. But it doesn't let up much after that. Make some more moves on crimpers to a diagonal slot/pocket (clip the 4th bolt from there), do another couple moves with bad feet and then lunge for the big (but not quite as big as you'd like) jug under the chains. Feel around for some big jugs up higher and clip the chains...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
