The Bourdon guide unaccountably designates this pleasant pitch a super classic. Far easier in the grade than the nearby Block and Tackle.

On the north side of Sugarloaf, climb left facing corner with a wide crack. Pull up onto the face and climb an 80+ degree face with some fingerlocks past three bolts; the crux moves between bolts two and three are pretty easy if you identify the footholds before launching into the sequence. Belay off the power tower.


On the north side of Sugarloaf.


Three bolts, maybe and nut or two and a #3 and/or #4 Camalot for the start.

Top roped by Royal Robbins, equipped and led by Dave Lane with two bolts, third lower "chicken bolt" added during retro bolting, this section protected adequately with a medium RP.

I thought it was great. Definitely easier than block and tackle. It deserves 3 stars though, people are probably just blasting it because they fell at the crux and are butthurt.
