  • Description 

    Another fun short sport route on the left side of Treasure Wall. This route and Twilight Time are two good short warm-up routes with an easy approach.

    Start about 10' left of Twilight Time, just left of a big pine tree next to the wall.

    Climb straight up the face to the second bolt. Move up and left to the third bolt. Angle up left to an arete. Clip the fourth bolt, then climb right and up to a great edge (5.9). Fun moves! Continue straight up to the anchor.

    Descent: lower 40' back down.

    Variation: The moderate cracks left of the bolt line can be climbed (with trad gear for pro) straight up to the arete by the fourth bolt.


    Take the Treasure Wall approach. Head right and uphill about 20' to a big pine tree next to the wall. The route starts just left of the tree. This is about 10' left of Twilight Time.

    4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.

    A good climb for newcomers to outdoor routes. If memory serves, the line can be climbed using the crack system to the left of the bolts (which probably goes at around 5.8), or on the face to the right of the bolts (probably 5.9).

    As good a lead on gear as bolts. RPs or similar required, but with that, reasonably protected. With some craftiness or ball-nuts, it can be sewn-up.

    This is a good warm up route for the area. It is probably easier on the left than the right.
