A fun little crag with two left facing corners. Just right of the popular ice climbing area. Parking is a challenge here. The best bet is to park at the trail head near the state beach, and walk or ride your bike about one mile to the crag.

Getting There 

Find Bristol ... At the town center take Lake st. (route 3A north)... Follow this till you can take a left on to West Shore Rd.... Follow West Shore with the lake on your right till you see the two corners on your left (its a pretty obvious cliff at the top of a short steep hill). Now turn around and go back and park.

Lay-back and stem up the finger crack to the trees. Rappel from trees. 25 years ago I left slings and rings up there, cant see them now. This climb is pretty good but it is a bit dirty now, maybe it will get cleaned up next summer....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire

Sugarloaf Mountain, near the cliff described, has a short bouldering area about halfway up the trail. It is shortly before the first peak on the yellow trail, called Little Sugarloaf. It's real chossy and covered in lichen but there are some good lines. Soloed one in hiking boots on the way down the trail, probably V0 ish but it was pretty fun. Worth a shot but it doesn't really need a pad.
