Description

Great Winter Spot, gets a lot of sun and has some really nice routes. The approach is less than desirable.
This area is designated as Charon Details
Access is always an issue here. Details

Getting There

Treasure Cove is located about a mile and a quarter east of the Treasure Lake parking lot. Hike on the great trail to from the memorial to Phillip Mitchell that marks the begining of the trail, follow toward Post Oak Falls. Take the bypass trail up the falls, and up into the meadow below Elk Slabs. The trail will veer back to the west and you will be able to see the Elk Slabs Climbing area. Treasure Cove lies to the north east so keep an eye out to the left once you see the slabs. Hike past several large boulders and climb the steep 3rd class approach into the canyon. A long 3rd class slab is on the right side which is the easier than picking your way up the boulders on the left. Moon Rock Wall is the first on your left, Dog Wall is to the right, and the Snakepit is back through the cave. The long approach is rewareded with some fine routes and it is rare to see another soul around.

Cool... do know that Philip Mitchell fell during one crossing before the chain was installed. A cool place, that is kind of surreal. Oct 17, 2012
Found this area scrambling around one day. Such a cool place. Had to take the kid up there so he could cross through the cave on the chain. He loved it. Great spot. Aug 9, 2012

Sorry, sad to say, you are dead wrong! From Post Oak Falls, Treasure Cove is North by North East, check the map... At Post Oak you hike North East and then trend back towards the north up into the meadows below Elk Slabs. Look for the big boulder which the trail snakes around and then scramble up into the cove and up the slab. Jun 12, 2012
