The Eggs is a concentrated area of intermediate problems and boulders that is a good place to begin at Three Sisters. The first boulder sits right off of the trail with several more boulders strewn throughout the hillside. A 10 minute easy hike from the trailhead makes this a great way to get out and climb in a beautiful location.

Getting There 

Park in the first parking lot (as you come from the east side or CO Hwy 73). Follow “Hidden Fawn Trail” for 10-15 minutes of easy hiking. You will come across a large block on your right (contains a couple bolted TR anchors), continue past this for 50 yards and the eggs sit off to the right in clear view less then 25 yards off of the trail. The other boulders in this area are up the hill and to the right of the trailside boulder.

Featured Route For The Eggs
Photo beta for "Tsunami."

Tsunami V9-10 7C+ CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : In Between Egg/Upper Eggs
Do the start same as "Ground Separation." Once you have gained control up onto the steep slab, continue straight up on very small/sharp crimps. Paste your feet on foot jibs, and toss like mad man out to the lip. Get ready for a very desperate and supper scary outward swing. Once you have gained control of your swing, pull up and over to the top, and thank you lucky stars that you never have to do that again!!!!!I gave this line V8 many years ago...but it could be much harder V9-...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
