Description

The Mini Bun is a small (Sugar Bun) sized sub dome above Sugarloaf proper. About 70ft tall, it's easy to pick out and distinguish from the many other rocks along the ridge by the subtle pink sun bleached hue that covers it's east face.

The dome currently hosts three routes on it's slabby East face (5.10d, 5.11d & 5.12d). The routes all feature micro thin edging, smearing and the occasional knob on fairly solid, high friction rock.

The Mini Bun typically gets sun in the morning through late afternoon. During high winds the top can be quite breezy, but the bottom where you'll be belaying is fairly well sheltered from the winds.

Getting There

From ridge just above Sugarloaf's main wall (near the decent), look for a faint trail along the ridge. Watching out for the occasional cairn, you'll more or less stay high on the ridge above (left of) the the many boulders that adorn the ridgeline until you come up on the Mini Bun. Approach from behind the dome and access it from above locating the anchors at it's top for setting up a TR or walk around (with some bushwhacking) to the base on it's downhill (south) side.
