Kessler (my son) was at a Cub Scout day camp today and Shaylee (my daughter) didn’t want to climb a mountain so I set off alone to climb Sugarloaf Mountain which is closest peaks to our house that I still haven’t climbed yet. I got a late start and climbed the mountain from the west.
The climb was pretty rugged and somewhat tedious in sections, but non-technical. It was cloudy and with distant thunder far away, but the weather wasn’t threatening on Sugarloaf and other than a few sprinkles, the weather wasn’t bad.
I found a route to the summit plateau and circled the entire rim looking at various viewpoints, until I climbed to the true summit which I found was the northwest point. I was the first person to sign the new register since it was placed five years ago. The old register had three signatures since 1980, making a total of five signatures in 30 years, so I guess this is a lonely mountain by Colorado standards.
