This area is located just north of the Sisters trail switchbacks on the east side of the hill, just below the sisters. There is a good selection of fun problems in this area including 'Child's Play'. This area actually gets some good shade throughout the day and is a worthwhile outing.
Take the Sister's trail from the east parking lot for about 1/2 mile until it starts to switchback up the hill south of the Three Sisters. Halfway up the hill, cut north to the east side of the Three Sisters and it is on the hill just below the formation.

Start on the low jug on the right of the wall. Work your way through awesome roof moves on good holds until the holds run out. Top out using a knob and a side pull rail. Either downclimb the easy terrain next to the tree, or walk off (about 150 feet) to the right. For full value, don't use any holds above the lip. This involves a large, nearly horizontal dyno to a sharp jug. This variation bumps the grade up a couple on the V scale. You have to try this!...[more] Browse More Classics in CO

I did this problem around the fall of 2000. It's a great line. It's really a one move wonder but worth the effort. I think I made the F.A. on this one, but it's hard to say. It was very dirty for sure. By the way - it was called Child's Play because my last name is Childers. Get it.... My friend Jim gave the line that name after our ascent of it. I felt it was more like V6? But after more cleaning and more travel who's to say. Thanks.
