Ascent Trip Report

The gate mentioned in the HPS guide was open, so we drove our high clearance 4x truck in 2 miles, then parked. We could have driven another 0.35 miles to the end of the road because the road was in better shape than it appeared from the cab of the truck. Also, there are no signs saying that the road is closed.

I climbed Three Sisters on March 28,1991 when the HPS had it located about 3/4 miles SSW of this summit; Peakbagger now calls this peak Three Sisters West.
