BETA PHOTO: West side of the Scone.
One of the many separate rocks that eroded off the Sugarloaf proper ages ago. The Scone is characterized by it's distinctly triangle "east" face and steep golden, nearly impenetrable "west" face that practically looms over the main trail when walking up to the main formation of Sugarloaf.
