Description [Edit]

Excellent short sport route hanging over the Pacific Ocean!

lead bolts to rappel anchor.


I liked this route. I will say that being 6'4 definitely made this route easier for me than most. Still the holds are small enough and the reaches long enough that it was a challenging route. What made this route memorable for me is that I did it as the tide was coming in. There is something poetic about climbing out of an area as the waves begin to lap at your feet. Sep 22, 2003
If you're like me--not completely solid at 5.11--Booty will probably kick your booty! My friends and I ended up bouncing between the easiest ways up among the three routes accessible via the rappell point on toprope. The start is pretty harsh with smallish hand holds and hard static moves and feels like solid 5.11+ to me. Somehow I flashed the start the first time (I think it was fear from the crashing of hightide waves washing over my climbing shoes fueling me), but the next day's climbing left me hangdogging. You should probably be a solid 5.10+ climber before going down into the Treasure Chest, and I would recommend setting a toprope on Captain Hook (5.10A) to make sure you have an easier out. Fun route though--Zeke Jul 21, 2005

This route is out of sequence on this page, it the second route left of Gritty Kitty, but right of Captain Hook. I kept looking at the thing left of Captain Hook thinking there was no way that was 5.10c.

Pulling through the hueco on this route was great. There is one super reachy move after the jug rail, which I think makes it 10d. Nov 20, 2017
