I started off for Sugar Loaf from the carpark in Forest Coal Pit to the north east of the summit.
This is a nice ascent from this side. This is a popular summit and for the first time I met several others ascending and descending from this side.
|Approach from the NE|
It's a fair pull up to the top, and as I arrived I was surprised to find probably 30 or 40 people already there around the trig point. This is a really narrow summit with only a small amount of real estate, so I took myself off to the eastern flank and tried to install myself out of the way of the public. As I was setting up a group of about 20 more people were ascending just below me.
|Squeezing into a tight spot|
The setting sun brought out the rich colours of the surrounding hills, a perfect end to a great day activating.
|The summit to myself.|
