Nice day at Alderfer/3 Sisters Park.


Climb the right most side of the South facing slab. Start by stepping onto a small natural pedestal and then continue up the slab to the finish. Great views!!!


Head towards Gilligan's Island and continue around to the far North side past the "Pirates Cove." Continue into the "Tortuga Area" by holding a northern course and eventually passing"The Pearl." Once passed "The Pearl" trend right (North/East) making your way to the top of the largest and most prominent feature that by now should be right before your eyes. Once on the top you will come upon a nice East facing wall with slabs that face to the south. Fun place to climb.


Pads and a spotter.

Fun, easy but makes you stop and think twice if you're going solo sans pad. More mental than anything because you do feel airy. And you're right, the views are great. I took a nap up there.
