Description

A fine route on perfect limestone that eases considerably after the first couple moves. Start to the right of the first bolt and work up and left to get to it. Reach up high to grab some crimpers and pull up on them to clip the second (really close to the first) bolt. Continue up on pockets, jugs, big flakes, and crimpers to the top.

Location

The only route on the north (downhill side) of Treasure Island.

Protection

5 bolts to chains.

Pretty clean route today with a nice belay spot although near the top there is some loose stuff to be wary of. Mar 29, 2014

Kind of a "you must be this tall to ride" start. I reached up high and snagged that first pocket no problem, but a couple of guys we were with really struggled with the start. I thought this way pretty fun, but there's still a bit of plant life. May 28, 2012

Reminded me of We Are Go For Launch on The Mission Control Block, but only much harder. Jul 16, 2008
Dirty and currently no landing for this route. But that will change when we finish the trail. The start is an obvious crux and a little insecure but hang on and good jugs show up. There are some pretty amazing pockets on this guy. Jul 14, 2008

I named it Buried Treasure because I had to clean off and bury through a lot of dirt and vegetation to get the line as clean as it is now. And it could STILL use some more cleaning... Jul 14, 2008
