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.
Access Issue: Seasonal Bird Nesting Closure Details
This area is a nesting site for ravens. The landowners ask that climbers avoid the climbs/areas where ravens are nesting. The nesting period generally lasts from mid May to late June/early July. During this time, observe any closure signs.
The first 30 feet are classic. After you get past the flake, it becomes a 5.2 walk-up.
From the huge Hyper-Gamma-Spaces roof, look left. This is the second obvious crack, with a prominent flake about 20-30 feet up.
Good trad gear. New leaders may find the crux (pulling the flake) a bit daunting. Small cams will help.
