This little formation lies about 100 yards from the school playground near the Pony Express trail.
There is a good mix of routes, mostly in the 5.10 to 5.12 range. These routes offer an equally good mix of Trad protected, Sport protected and Sporty protected routes.

Getting There 

Start up the standard Sugarloaf approach. When you cross the Pony Express trail, follow it to the left and the Sugarbun will become obvious.
