Description

This area offers stronger climbers with a bit more challenging climbs than the main crags. North facing crag and can sometimes receive a strong bite of wind if climbing the near winter season.

Getting There

Take Comus Road to the intersection in Stronghold with the Sugarloaf Mountain entrance on right. Instead of turning right into the park (as for the main climbing areas), continue straight ahead on Comus Road a short distance to an intersection with Mount Ephraim Road. Turn right and take Mount Ephraim Road about 2 miles to a small pull-off (only holds two cars) on the right, at the trailhead for North Peaks Trail (towards White Rocks NOT to West View Parking). Follow a blue-blazed trail about 15 minutes uphill to an overlook on the left. Go to North end of the rocks. This overlook is the top of White Rocks.

Lots of great routes on the granite face. Long slings neeed to reach trees for anchors. Whie Rocks are on Sugarloaf Mountain, but outside the gated area. It does not seem that this particular area is behind the closed gate on the mountain as it is down a public road and hence you should not have to leave by sunset. There are a few more areas to park near the trailhead, probably room for 4-5 cars and other pulloffs are nearby. A good 30 minute walk to the crag. Jun 30, 2018
