Description 

The Sugar Cube is a 100 foot crag situated just below Mary's Bust and right of the approach trail to MB. Most of the stone on TSC is unappealing sugary stuff, but like many crags in the area has some sections of fine grained, bullet hard granite. A few lines have gone in on this good stone and several other interesting routes can be had as well. These are situated on the face/arete section facing the trail and include a fun 5.10, a very burly and technical route left of this (unfinished), and a variation start to the second route.


Getting There 

Park as for MB, start on the same trail but cut through the dry creek bed to the base of the crag. Approach time is only seconds from the road.


L->R: 

AB. Match-Up Left, 12-, 1p, 60', bolts.
B. The Match-Up, 12, 1p, 60', bolts.
CB. Hypocrisy's Promise, 11-, 1p, 75', bolts.

HP starts off a block on the edge of the west face. A short, crimpy start to jugs gives way to solid edge climbing as the route winds left to the arete proper. I had originally installed the route with the intent of knocking it off at the first good opportunity along with the other two routes on the crag. A TNB session at the gym left me with a ripped rotator cuff and fully dislocated shoulder, and no climbing for a while as the shoulder repairs. Bert snagged the FFA without any knowledge of my ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
