The Sugar Cube showing The Match-Up and the left s...
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.
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.

Stick clip the first bolt and enter from the left. An awkward move gains good hands and the jam out right. From here on, the route follows TMU....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
