Sugar Loaf

Elevation: 6,345 ft
Prominence: 365

This peak is not in the book.

Sugar Loaf, with it’s rugged, conical-shaped summit, is located on the east side of the Silver City Range in the Owyhee Mountains, and west-northwest of Bald Mountain. The summit is actually the high point on a ridge that runs east from the main crest. This ridge divides Horse Ranch Creek, on the north, from Stobie Creek, on the south.

Access and Route

I have not received any ascent information or climbed this peak. But, after viewing Sugar Loaf from Bald Mountain, I believe access is possible from the Bald Mountain trailhead and from the Silver City Range crest to the west. Both starting points involve an initial significant descent and, of course, a significant climb on the return.
