I read on summitpost that people attempt Copper (E Face) from a campsite west of Holden Village. What if you want to also do Fernow (E Ridge)? Is there a place to camp closer to the peaks?

Copper Basin (take the trail that heads up there)

Just make sure you do a very good job of burying your shit a long ways from the creek, as that is the source of the villages drinking water. Granted they have a filtration plant, but it is the thought that counts =)

Starting from the basin, or a little bit lower is the least Bushwacky way to get to Copper, you should gain at least 2000' on the trail before leaving it.
