Alpine Scramble - Fern Lake


Alpine Scramble - Fern Lake

An annual scramble in search of golden larch. Best 3 days (or maybe 2) to attempt Anthem, Choral and perhaps Gopher Peaks. Please read leader's notes.

  • Very Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 18.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 6,000 ft

TBD, but note it will be early.

This trip will only go with good weather.

Tentative itinerary:

Day 1: Hike to Fern Lake and set up camp.  Scramble up Anthem Peak for the sunset. (3/4 mile/800' gain)

Day 2:  Scramble Choral and maybe Gopher.  (If we don't do Gopher, we may depart after Choral if we're back at camp early enough.

Day 3:  Hike out.
