The crevice, as of 1.3 update is unaccessible. Shame I didn't get the treasure...

It is absolutely accessible! Just takes like an hour of climbing into a tiny hole until you finally glitch the game out enough to get in. The chest is very much still there. If you need a more detailed explanation of how to get in I'd look it up cause i dont have any pictures to show you unfortunately

It’s like a relay thing. There’s a rock that has sparkles and you have to stand on that. Then next it transfers to a dead branch and you stand on there again. Until you reach the one near the tree.
