Featured Route For Sugarloaf Area
The view from the belay at the top of pitch 3 is pretty outstanding as are the chicken head moves traversing out left onto this face.

Science Friction (to Left Eyebrow) 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- E4 5c  NM : Organ Mountains : ... : Sugarloaf
Described as a highly recommended Organ classic, this climb is a great way to reach the Sugarloaf summit, for a party that's up for climbing 5.10 slabs. Don't be discouraged by the 5.11 rating, the crux section is short, right at a bolt which you could easily aid off of to get through, or avoided altogether by poorly protected 5.9 friction traverse.Some, but not all, of the original 1/4" bolts have been replaced with modern 3/8" bolts, and all of the hanging belays have at least one new bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
