Middle Sister
Kananaskis, Alberta
June 6, 2002

Middle Sister was a little more interesting than I expected. From our starting point, Phil, Kari, Dinah and I followed an access road (is now on private property) to the trail that runs alongside Stewart Creek. Once out of the trees, it became an enjoyable hike. We continued up the drainage until we were east of and below Big Sister. Here the route bends to the right and passes below Big Sister-Middle Sister col. We followed a trail in the scree to the summit.
