Three Brothers

A classic alpine scramble in the Teanaway, with abundant flowers in both the creek drainages and the open ridges and final rocky summit. The trip is strenuous but not particularly technical, with over 5,000 feet of elevation gain, ups and downs and views of the Stuart Range.


Hike the Stafford Creek Trail to 4,800 ft (3.5 mi)  just before crossing a drainage.  Leave the trail and head easterly following the drainage to the saddle at 6,000 ft. 

Ascend about 75 ft northerly to avoid cliffs (or drop to basin if snow or gravel is too hard for safe travel) and traverse east around the end of the ridge. When the saddle is in sight (Southwest Ridge of the Three Brothers), head for the saddle at approximately 6,040 ft, dropping about 150 ft.  Then follow the Southwest Ridge to the summit.
