Crank the splitter thin crack to a ledge. Move a little left to a bolt, then straight up through a short crack. Move up and left to the anchor just past the small cave and on top of some blocks. (Description taken from The High Country Cragger - Mike Grimm 2010)

Rappel from Anchor or walk off carefully.

Onsight Onsight ascent by: spogam on 2011-08-13 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars 1st time to Sunken Treasure. 3rd route climbed.

Harder than KUWTJ route next to it. 2 cruxes on this one. The crack start can be tricky - I had boulder pads at the base. Good rest leads to a roof with smaller holds including some quartz features and an overhanging dyno to a horn. Stoked to get the onsight on this one.
