Background

Back in the olden days, refined sugar was sold in solid, conical “loaves”. Throughout the world, many a mountain, hill, outcrop and butte resembling such loaves have been named “Sugarloaf” (or the local language version of this term). Here I have compiled a collection of mountains named Sugarloaf on SummitPost.

Speaking from my experience living in the USA, the name Sugarloaf has been applied to so many mountains as to become tiresome. Where I live in Colorado, only Bald/Baldy and Sheep rival Sugarloaf as the most over-used mountain titles.

Despite their tired, over-used names, these Sugarloaves are often lovely mountains, pleasant in their conical symmetry. This page is designed to celebrate these sugary sweet mountains, wherever they may be.

Please help me keep this list up to date by notifying me (via the Comments section) of new Sugarloaf mountains on SummitPost, or letting me know of any Sugarloaf summits I have failed to include in this list. Very special thanks to SP Member EricChu for identifying and bringing to my attention numerous "Sugarloaves" throughout Europe.

There are two more just a few miles from each other in the California desert between Ridgecrest and Lone Pine. One is east of Cartago; the other is a few miles to the south, east of Coso Junction.
