The Climb 

A nice route, on good rock. Overstarred in the Vogel guide at 5 stars, but would get 3.5 stars in my book. Double cruxed, well protected, but just a bit short to be cinco estrellas. Crack finish or escapable alternative to the left. This, along with several other area classics, make the hike up Queen Mountain well worth it.


The Gear 

5 bolts, and a fixed pin

I've climbed this route twice and would give it 3 out of 5 stars which translates into a great route. It is too short to be a classic and sports some sections with loose edges. Dave and Margy must have augmented the FA in a way that rendered "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" a classic in DEE's mind.

A really good route which, if longer, would merit additonal stars. The rock is good, the location & position stellar and the direct finish the obvious choice. Thanks Dave and Margy for such a fine addition!

I don't know what VS and ATS are talking about - I agree with DE that this is clearly a five star route. As far as rock quality, continuous difficulty, and interesting moves Treasures is just as good or better than Figures.

Good or better than figures? Not even close.

If it were as long as "Figures" it would be as good or better.


ps. Anonymous cowards deserve no comment.

Its been about 20yrs since I was on this climb, but I remember feeling a bit disappointed for the 5 star experience. Its a great 3 star route though!!
