On the ladders
SP members Bob and Eric using the ladders that lead to the lookout. The set up is quite
ingenious and effective. A rope is added near the top as an additional help.
A book was written about this unique lookout by Malcolm Bates "Three Fingers,The Mountain,The Men and a Lookout" Well worth the effort to find
at a library or via Amazon.

Great picture. I made the mistake of stashing my trekking poles horizontally on my pack and had a moment of being stuck between the second and third ladder. Exciting times.

Thanks for the comments and vote on this one. Yeah, the little climb between the second and third ladders is a bit of a surprise and I can see how getting stuck is a possibility. We left our packs down below. Also, we have a discussion going on at NWHIkers that you might find interesting. Eric added some more pics there and I think Bob will too.

Great. Thanks for the links. The last time I did Three Fingers was with Tom of NWHikers. Do you know him?

Tom and I spent three days together in the Enchantments back in 2002. A great guy and an outstanding photographer.
