Sugar Loaf

Elevation: 9,045 ft
Prominence: 745

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 128 of the book. Updated July 2019


This is one of two Idaho peaks named Sugar Loaf. With its 800-foot, near-vertical, granite East Face, this Sugar Loaf the more impressive of the two. Surprisingly, there are no reports of rock climbing attempts on the Face. This could be due to the peak’s remote location or because, as one climber told me, the granite is rotten. The granite looks solid from a distance. USGS Hoodoo Meadows
