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.

Dihedral Problem V2 5+  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : Trailside Egg
This is a very fun and delicate dihedral problem with some finger power and interesting footwork required. Start with fingers matched in a slot at about crotch height. A tiny, difficult-to-match lip provides starting feet. Work your way up the dihedral until you can reach the midway jug at the lip. You can either use the ledge to the left and top out that way, or eliminate the ledge altogether and top out up right with a series of sloping rails and a proper mantle move. The up-and-right topout a...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
