Sit start on the obvious rail and climb out the steep almost horizontal arete. After the first few moves you hit a large rail allowing a quick shake, regroup and make a large move to an obvious 2 finger pocket. Bump the left hand thru good pinches to a great jug in the slot. From here the topout is easier although awkward and committing.
You could follow the chossy easy ground to the top of the boulder, but I traversed way left to an easy downclimb.
Follow the established trail to the Las Hermanos area. This is the obvious cave just East of the Arniel boulder. As you follow the trail just look left for the chalked overhang.
Pads and Spotters, there are several rocks around the landing zone so spot carefully.

I was told this was a V5 by some folks that were working it when I did it. I don't really know what the grade is, but it is fun and roofy.

This was the first boulder problem I've done at Socorro so it's difficult for me to grade, against other Socorro boulder problems, but it seems like it would get V6 at Hueco. I got the grade from what I was told and from Bob Broilo's web page: infohost.nmt.edu/~bob/boulder_guide/box/tres_hermanas.html#c>>>
At any rate this climb is alot of fun and has me psyched for bouldering at Socorro.
