As sport routes go this is a good one. Reasonably steep, continuous, and exposed knob-tugging up the arete to an exciting bulge. No single move is 5.11a but the continuous nature keeps you honest.


Treasure Towers formation, between the Pink/White walls and on the way to Easy Street. Obvious blunt arete on the right side of a gash in the cliff.

I believe the description on this route is slightly off because it is the same as the site description which also appears to be off. That said this is a really fun climb on solid, well cleaned rock. Also it is 8 bolts to two open shuts.

May 10, 2012 got it right. Treasure Towers is the set of overhanging walls, split by the chimney, before the rebar ladder and after the scramble down the huge boulders below the Test Site.
