A tough uphill. Real huff and puff. No view on top of Sugarloaf ( just a tiny 3 rock cairn to mark summit). Still worth it. Rocks are slippery so use caution.

Had to change out of snowshoes and into spikes for the final ascent. There was too much scrambling for snowshoes( (3/25/17), though at lower elevation they were very useful. Only made Twin. One of the better, more technical trails in the Catskills I think, especially in winter conditions.
