The tale of the Three Sisters: In 1883 Mayor Rogers of Canmore decided to let his nephew, Albert Rogers name the three mountains that overlooked the sleepy town. The snow-capped peaks were said to look like nuns; this later transposed into “Sisters”. The little sister, Hope, features a large blocky plateau at it’s peak and is the most difficult to climb. The middle sister, Charity, is a popular intermediate scramble and the big sister Faith, is the peak farthest from the highway and is an easy limestone scramble.
