Description 

As per the new Rifle/Western CO guidebook, "Begin near the left side of the main slab, climb a steep gray face with a crux bulge low down. This might be the best slab route on Glenwood limestone...."

Right on with that, excellent climbing. The holds are not chalked up or polished, it makes for thoughtful climbing. It is well worth the hike to the crag.


Location 

This is just left of Smear Tactics. It has great views of the river and canyon below. You still hear the traffic but nothing like being at the Puoux.


Protection 

All bolts, can't remember exactly, maybe 8? Two bolt anchor.

Nope, Mike, wrong route - you are thinking of The Thread. Sugar Pop is all bolts, steeper, and less runout.

Thanks Jeff. I must have put my comment on the wrong route. My bad. I'm going to delete me comment and move it to the appropriate route. Thanks for putting up these routes. It's a fun and interesting place to climb!
