Description 

This line was originally left incomplete by a traveling Russian climber. The boulder problem from the upper ledge has caught the attention on many passing climbers over the last 20 years. The project has recently been retro bolted and climbed, clocking in at 5.13a. "Al Tesoro" is spanish for "to the treasure"

Location 

Left side of the wall. Begins on the left most bolted line to the ledge (you can move the belay). From the ledge ,up the steep crimpy boulder problem and on through spicy and steep climbing.

Protection 

10 bolts to chain anchor

10 bolts I think. Name actually means "to the treasure", not just "the treasure." Once you leave the last ledge there is a bolt that is not part of the route but is at the base of the first overhanging section and adds incredible rope drag if clipped. I'm not sure if I put it there or not... If so, I have no idea what I was thinking at the time-- cause it very obviously adds no protection, since you can reach the first real bolt from the same position and it will actually keep you safe.
