Routes in Treasure Peak

Southwest Ridge T 4th 1 2 I 2 M 1b

Description

This conspicuous black striped peak was obviously the "victim" of heavy glaciation in the last ice age, being immediately east of a group of big alpine peaks, and more than likely poking out of a huge ice-field. As such, while not having the classic lines, it's more or less a nunatak.

The west summit is the higher point and there is a spectacular view of the Abbot group and Bear Creek Spire from here.

Getting There

Various approaches. For the Southwest Ridge camp at Treasure Lakes and hike/scramble up to Treasure Saddle (12,480+).

IMHO the best climbing on this peak is the 4th class traverse from the east to west summit. Generally good rock and great exposure. Aug 16, 2016
