This trip is a repeat from spring 2019 led by this leader which was cut short due to approaching weather.  A recent second attempt was destination switched due to bad roads.   It is a fun outing and the leader wants to go back and complete as intended.  There should be no snow in this treeless area but micro spikes are recommended in your equipment just in case.  Following is the original trip description slightly modified because it is no longer exploratory as was the original.

Who knows how many Sugarloafs' there are in Colorado.  This one is west of Deckers completely in the Hayman burn area meaning no trees.  We start where the Stoney Pass Road crosses Wigwam Creek and follow an abandoned road to the base of the inverted cone of Sugarloaf Peak.  We ascend the peak choosing our lines as we go and then descend the opposite side.  We cross the abandoned road again and repeat on the the unnamed 8685' partner of Sugarloaf, the final descent bringing us back to our starting point.  So this is a loop over two summits off trail except for the old road.  The climbs are steep grass Class 2 terrain with some Class 2+ (occassional use of hands but not full scrambling) near the summit. Don't be fooled by the short distance - this trip is a workout and requires fortitude to ascend the second peak after going up and down the first.  Views from the tops are great.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
