Seasonal Notes for Sugarloaf
Once the cold descends and Sugarloaf gets iced up, its western side is extremely dangerous for hikers. It’s one of the few places in the Catskill Park where you need full crampons, and maybe even technical climbing gear. For these reasons, in winter, Sugarloaf is known locally as “Suicide Mountain”.
