Cougar Creek New Crag - Sugar Shack

Image icon SUGAR SHACK 1.jpg2 MB

This is the very first crag you will reach about 12 minutes from the car. It is on the right (SE) side of the creek at the first mandatory crossing just after the well traveled trail in the woods which is optional after the large pile of boulders.

The crag is short but burly. The rock is surprisingly good though it might be a tad dusty.

From left to right
1 Maple Bacon 10c (6 bolts) FA: B Pullan
Thin holds on rounded features to roof. Big move up right to good hold and to the top.

2 Agave Nectar 10b/c (4 bolts) FA: B Pullan
Cool fins to roof, thin holds over roof.

3 Sour Worms 11a (6 bolts) FA: Darren Vonk
Reachy start to powerful moves to big rest and another easy roof.

4 Honey Bee 11d/12a (5 bolts)
DIRECT FFA: Matthew Wade 5.11c/d
FFA: Joel Labonte 5.11d/12a
Thin powerful holds through 3 roofs.

5 Tap It! 5.11a (3 bolts) FA: Nico Magnan
Deceivingly fun and awkward through bomber rock angling up and left.

NOTE: Photo was taken mid cleaning and the crag is much cleaner now.
