Private Land-gate closed and locked by nightfall. Details
Sugarloaf is privately owned but allows climbing. You need to be out of the gates before dark. Details


Climb the front face of the pillar which is less than vertical. Crux is getting onto the route at the beginning. It is an easy climb is a bit slippery. Lots of good footholds. It's a very good route for beginners to get some confidence and a feel for toproping. You will be just feet off the stone stairs so people going by are close and often stop by to watch and talk.


Park in West View lot and go up the stone stairs. This rock will be near the top and right front of you - the stairs turn 90 degrees left at it. The Boy Scout Ledges will be on the left. Step off the stairs to the right and you are there.


Toprope. Good trees above to anchor to. You can walk onto the top of the rock.
