      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Camp for Copper & Fernow

Recommended Posts


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.
