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.
A small south facing tower ~40ft in height embedded in the hill behind it which leads up to the summit. The formation is shaped like a thin tetrahedron with the edge facing south; thus there is a southwest face (climber left) and southeast face (climber right). Some great, overlooked lines here, though they tend to be a bit run out. Much more secluded than Middle Earth and Boyscout, and not many hikers scramble here as compared to the westview slabs.
Getting There [Edit]
Park at the westview parking area and follow the green trail, as if going to Middle Earth. Castle rock will be to the left of the stairs, directly across from Middle Earth and downhill (west) from Boyscout.
