Ascent of Sugarloaf on 2011-12-03
|Date:||Saturday, December 3, 2011|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||4860 ft / 1481 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI parked on Dead Indian Memorial Road at about milepost 9.7 at elevation 4,080 ft. There is an abandoned road going down off the road that I fillowed down across the creek and then up the other side for a short distance. At the apex of the road, I left it and started hiking up the slope. I found the road again coming up from my right after climbing up about 30ft. I followed the road to the right until it split left and right. I went straight in open country with some trees. I headed directly for Sugarloaf and when I got to the base of a steep tree covered slope, I started traversing to my right and climbing the slope up to the ridge top. I followed the ridge to the summit. Great veiws from the summit. There is a register on the summit, but the pen didn't work, so I didn't sign in. It looks like some local ranchers climb up here occasionally.
