Access Issue: Private Land-gate closed and locked by nightfall. Details
Sugarloaf is a privately owned recreation area. The park is closed at night and the gate is locked. Allow enough time to pack, hike, and drive out the oneway road to the gate before it is locked.
This face is at the western base of westview overlooks, and thus gets afternoon sun. Relatively secluded area, with a few easy-moderate routes. On this face, the "real" climbing ends after ~50 feet, but you can continue on 3rd/2nd class terrain to Westview Overlook. The easiest way to return to the base of the slab from the top is to take a 2nd class "trail" which hugs the slab on the climber's left side.
