Description

This is the second from rightmost bolted route on the Treasure Chest, and if you can find the treasure chest, this is probably the first route you will see. It is also the only bolted route right of the wide crack known as Gritty Kitty (5.7).

A slopey crack leads up to some very small hands that are definately the crux after the third bolt. Hold on for the fourth clip, and easier climbing awaits above.

Protection

4 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor. To set up a top anchor, walk around above to the anchors, approaching them from the right.

I'm so glad to see Jim T. suggest 12a. 11b would only be accurate if you are very tall, the crux is very height dependent. For average height, it is some delicate/technical balancing with micro holds until you can lunge for some slopers. I think the route would be less exciting to folks over 5'10" who can just reach through the crux. I'd say the crux felt about as hard as that of Avalon on Shipwreck, and was just as fun. Really good route!

I found a .5 cam in the pocket between bolts two and three comforting. A .75 with a sling also works. 4 days ago

Correction:This WAS the right-most climb in the Treasure Chest. Red Beard has since been bolted to the right. Jul 3, 2005
