i have climbed South Sister about 4 or 5 times... in the fall as well as as a snowboard descent i Spring.
i have also climbed Mt Hood 4 times and Middle Sister is also a nice climb (climbed twice - once from north, once from the south)... I attempted the "3 sisters marathon" with some friends in 2000 but we only did Middle and South sister. the "marathon" is climbing all 3 peaks in one outing - usually in less than 24 hours. but North Sister is considerably harder.
Climbing is awesome --- i attempted Mt Rainier is 2000 and Mt Blanc in 2002, but both were not successful b/c of weather. and in Europe i have now climbed many peaks (like Grossglockner at 3980m)
Ski touring is my winter supplement to mountain biking.
