This is the obvious buttress on the north side of the road when you turn onto Sugarloaf Road. It has some decent rock, but also a lot of munge and loose rock. I have never seen anyone else climb here. There is a single known route on the southwest side of the buttress (Sugar Crack). There is also a juggy and steep boulder problem on the northeast side.


A. Rubberneck Crack, 10, 1p, 110', gear.
B. Sugar Crack, 10- PG-13, 1p, 90', gear.
C. Sugaree, 4, 1p, 100', gear.

Getting There 

Drive west up Boulder Canyon approximately 3.8 miles from where the highway crosses Boulder Creek. Turn right on Sugarloaf Rd and park in a 1-2 car pulloff on the right side of the road about 250' from the intersection. The crag is directly across the road on the north side.

So I'm not sure if this route had been done before. I though I would add it to the page, because it's a good way to get up the top of Sugar Crack to top rope it. It's also a good/easy way to get to the top of the crag. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
