Description

Pitch 1 (5.10d): Climb up past the first bolt (shared with "Sea of Gold") then move up and right to a good stance below the second bolt. Cruxy moves get you up to the third bolt, then more tricky moves past that one. Easier climbing leads to a second crux section just before the anchors.
Pitch 2 (5.10c): Go straight up a black streak with some shallow incipient crack sections to a crux traverse right on a water polished slab about 2/3 of the way up the pitch. Easier slab leads to the anchor.

Location

Rap into the Bonus Ledge area from the rap anchors atop the route, or traverse over from the Video Dome area along a brushy trail at the base of the crag. The route starts about 50-75' left of the start of Captain Cook. Look for two lines of bolts up the rock, sharing the same first bolt. The right-hand line is "Sunken Treasure".

Protection

Bolts (~10 per pitch) with bolted rap anchors. A 60m rope will get you (just barely! Tie stopper knots) to the P1 anchor on "Sea of Gold" from there you can rap to Bonus Ledge.

Very challenging route in a great setting. I thought the first pitch was pretty clean rock wise. Luckily my partner lead the first pitch(it was hard for me) and I took the second. First pitch is the harder of the two. More physical where as the second pitch is more technical. Like Eric72 said, there is some lichen on the second pitch. Happily, this route is bolted for you to enjoy the route and not get hurt. Something like 14 bolts on the second pitch. And you do need a 70m to get down it. DONT use a 60m.

I agree with what Eric72 said, with more traffic on this route it will clean up nicely. Such fun routes in a beautiful setting. May 28, 2016
