Unlike most Colorado class V runs, Treasure is a full day on the water, not just a short roadside run. Photo: looking downstream from the put in- The river is in a canyon in the 'v' and goes behind the mountain on the left. The road is on the other side of that mountain.
This blog post contains media from 2 different runs. Photos are from a Saturday June 9 run with Chris Larsen, Chris Menges and Michael from Crested Butte and the Video is from a Tuesday June 12 run with Lawrence Simpson, Mike Haggadorn and friends.

From lcskayak.blogspot.com: "Treasure Canyon is a relatively new run as it was only discovered in 2004/05 and hasn't been run much since. This could be partially due to its remoteness and just the whole unknown factor that it brings. It feels like your running a First D even though you know its been done before."
Check out the video from Lawrence's trip. Principle videography and editing by Lawrence Simpson.
As you progress downstream into the gorge, the water definitely picks up plenty of volume. Quality drops and some portaging follow. Twizzler is the quintessential Treasure drop with a slightly tricky lead in (see video)
As you can see in the picture (above) the river picks up a substantial amount of volume.
