- This is not necessarily a new route. It may be a forgotten project or a re-equipping of an old, unrecorded route. There was a single, old rusty and suspect pin lost in the moss at half height (now replaced by a bolt). There may have been more that have fallen out, or have been claimed by the moss in the cracks. There is no information that I can find about it and no recorded first ascent. If anyone has such info, please post it to the comments and I will update it.*
Like the Dragon's Treasure in The Hobbit, this route is a lost treasure. This treasure is a line of bomber, overhanging jugs separated by a tricky but interesting crux. At the second bolt, you hug a pillar and slap a horn. If you like overhanging jug hauls, then this one is for you. One of the best climbs in Gollum's Cave.
The route is about 15 feet left of Escher's Staircase just right of a tall pine.
