Great Winter Spot, gets a lot of sun and has some really nice routes. The approach is less than desirable.
Treasure Cove is located about a mile and a quarter east of the Treasure Lake parking lot. Hike on the great trail to from the memorial to Phillip Mitchell that marks the begining of the trail, follow toward Post Oak Falls. Take the bypass trail up the falls, and up into the meadow below Elk Slabs. The trail will veer back to the west and you will be able to see the Elk Slabs Climbing area. Treasure Cove lies to the north east so keep an eye out to the left once you see the slabs. Hike past several large boulders and climb the steep 3rd class approach into the canyon. A long 3rd class slab is on the right side which is the easier than picking your way up the boulders on the left. Moon Rock Wall is the first on your left, Dog Wall is to the right, and the Snakepit is back through the cave. The long approach is rewareded with some fine routes and it is rare to see another soul around.
