Description 

Middle of the Three Sisters.

Slog up the talus aiming for the gully to the left of the tower. A treed ledge is taken right to the start of the first pitch.

P1, low 5th, we soloed it
P2, 200 foot long 5.9. Head left towards the top and belay.
P3, 160 ft 5.10. Traverse left off the belay to reach a hand crack. Go up this and climb the obvious right facing hand crack in a corner. On the top of this clip a fixed pin and make the crux moves which quickly give way to jugs. some minor looseness leads to the belay at a exposed good ledge with a tree.
P4, 5.7 chimney off the left side of the ledge leads to a big ledge after 100 feet.
P5, Grovel up a short chimney and then climb a splitter finger crack that widens to OW. There's a chockstone you can sling in the OW, a #4 is too small, fortunately it's short. Belay at the top of a recessed chimney
P6, 5.8 wide crack leads to the summit

Protection 

Gear to 3" doubles in the small sizes.
