      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Copper-Fernow traverse

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Anyone who’s traversed the ridge from Fernow to Copper care to share some route info. I have found a lot of questions about it, but not much solid info. I am wondering about the portion included in the attached photo.

It looks pretty involved from the summit of Fernow, but maybe that's what you're after?

We’ll at least it isn’t covered with gendarmes. I’ve seen one trip report on here, but it seemed rather odd because the person described lots of difficulties on the way there, with rappels, but no difficulties on the way back. Do you know anyone who’s done it?

yeah, I was on Fernow a couple weeks ago, saw this view, and said "fuck that". The traverse looks sketch balls

 

Jeez, coming from you I don’t like the sound of sketch balls. Do you anything about rock quality along the east ridge climb of Fernow?

I don't think so, but perhaps @therunningdog did?  The only way I could think that you wouldn't have problems coming back would be to go a different way!

I climbed the E ridge of Fernow.  The rock is par for the course for the Cascades.  I did not find it too bad/unsavory.  I've been on much worse.  :)
