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.
Fun climb up the face and then around to the left of The Prow. Some crack to work and a nice corner. Crux is the final move across the prow. It's right off the path to the top of Sugarloaf (about 40 feet) so you get a lot of watchers. Be careful how you setup your anchors, other climbers have mentioned biners on anchor ropes disappearing into the hands of hikers/schoolkids. You are right next to the Cub Scout cracks which are great for beginners or to learn place gear.
Sugarloaf Mountain. Go up the green trail to the end of the rock stairs. You will see the prow jutting out. Easy walk to the top of the crag to drop a toprope. Plenty of room at the bottom for belaying.
