Very engaging and enjoyable climbing on edges and crimps. Exceptionally good movement on steep terrain for the grade. A nice first route for those making the transition from the gym to the outdoors.


On the far right end of the north side of the sugarloaf. Meander up the broken slab before stepping left onto the main wall.


Gear is sparse, but good. Small cams or nuts with nothing bigger than finger-sized. Most choose to top-rope off the easily accessible hydro tower.
