Treasure Island

Utah > Wasatch Range > Southern Wasatch > Rock Canyon

Description

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.
