The beautiful remote setting, mind blowing exposure, and fantastic climbing will make this a memorable adventure. The climbing consists of mostly hand and finger crack through several roofs with many edges for face/foot holds. The Laramie Range guidebook mentions the route can be done in 2 pitches, however we did in 3 to avoid rope drag.Pitch 1 (5.6)Probably a couple of ways to start this, all of which are no harder than 5.6 and will lead to a low angle right facing corner that gradually become...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

I don't know if this will get any response due to the inactivity at this location but I would admit that there is close to zero accurate information regarding the newly bolted routes on the south face. My wife and I have been climbing in the area several times over the summer and have noticed several new routes. I would firstly like to say thank you to the person responsible and follow up with the request for any route information. I can upload some of our photos of the climb to help but I would be loss if it were to attempt to explain/rate them.

the 4 routes I posted we put up in 1994. Since then, Zach O and crew have put up more routes east of mine [near the SE corner] and I hear there is a route to the summit. I suspect Zach will not contribute any to this site as he is working on a guide book for it. In fact he does not cooperate with me to post what he has done. If you need routes names to post, think of some and use 'em. We can do an "AKA" when we see his completed book with other names for the same route.

Feel free to post up your contributions, routes, corrections, and photos. I am glad to see Sugar Loaf has been discovered through MP and hope to hear more from you.
