This short bouldering rock is only about 7' high. However, the 5-10 routes on the rock are quite varied in difficulty, from V0 to V5, and also a very hard project. The rock on the Triangle Boulder is quite stable, considerably more so than many of the other rocks of the Canyon Trail.

The landings are uncharacteristically flat for the rocks of the area.

The descent off the top of this short boulder is fun and committing. Jump off the top onto the grassy hillside just to the climber's right of the routes.

Traingle Arete (V3) is a fun and pumpy short route.

Getting There 

Approach time: 9 minutes.

To get to this boulder, drive 3.3 miles up Adobe Canyon Road from highway 12 into the Sugarloaf Ridge State Park to a 8-12 car pullout on your left. Park.

Cross the street and head downhill on the Canyon Trail, which will have a small 3' high sign pointing you in the right direction.

Walk downhill on the windy and gently steep trail past the Canyon Trail Boulder, which will be the obvious 12 foot high rock on the left that grows out of the hillside. Continue downhill just past the first drainage break another 200 yards, where you will see a large mossy boulder on your left. Walk towards this boulder and past it heading downhill, and the Sugarsmack Boulder will be the scond boulder that you run into, looking like a cube sitting on a point.

Continue past the Sugarsmack boulder traversing the hillside, and the Triangle boulder sits just above a flat rock about 50 yards down.
