Description

Treasure Wall is the left side of the north face of Tonnere Tower. There are four one-pitch sport routes here (Tree Line, Twilight Time, Bobby's Back, and The Twilight Kid), a two-pitch sport route (Buried Treasure), a trad route (Join The Party), and two multi-pitch mixed routes that go all the way to the summit (Workingman's Blues and Fields of Gold). All the routes have two-bolt anchors; some of the anchors are equipped with lowering hooks.

Outstanding routes include Buried Treasure, The Twilight Kid, and Fields of Gold.

Routes from left to right:

11. Tree Line, 9, 1p, bolts. Face just left of big pine tree.
12. Twilight Time, 9+, 1p, bolts. Face right of big pine tree.
13. Bobby's Back, 10d, 1p, bolts. Thin face.
14. Buried Treasure, 9, 2p, bolts. Face and aretes.
15. Join The Party, 9+, 1p, gear. LFC to flake.
16. The Twilight Kid, 11-, 1p, bolts. Face and shallow corner.
17. Fields of Gold, 10-, 3p, gear & bolts. Fun mixed route that can be done as a 1, 2, or 3-pitch climb.
18. Workingman's Blues, 10, 4p, gear & bolts. Adventure route to top of Tonnere Tower.
"Buried Alive", 10-, 3p, bolts. Link-up of 14 and the last pitch of Stayin' Alive.

Getting There

Cross the creek via the tyrolean, or wade or hop rocks if the water level is low enough.

Once across the creek, go to the tree on the far side of the tyrolean, and follow a path up left through the woods to a talus field. Climb up the talus, following cairns, to the rock wall. Head right, up a hill, to the routes. The first route you will come to is Tree Line, about 15' up the hill, just left of a big pine tree. The last route is about 50' up the hill, on a high ledge by another big pine tree (Fields of Gold).

This approach takes about 10 minutes.
