Mountain Climbing in Mount Fernow Climb, Wenatchee, Washington USA
Mount Fernow is the highest summit of the Entiat Mountains, located in the North Cascades. The top elevation of the peak is at 9249ft/2819m high and is suitable for climbing from Spring through Fall. In order to approach Mount Fernow, hike the Phelps Creek Trail until you reach Leroy Creek Basin.
From the basin, climb the drainage coming down from Seven Fingered Jack mountain from where you can now see the Mount’s Fernow base. The mountain offers exciting scramble climbing on solid rocks, but in some sections the rocks are loose and require careful climbing. Because of the long and grueling climb, it is recommended to be done as a two or three days climb.
Camping is allowed on the Phelps Creek Trail and in the beautiful Leroy Creek Basin. Once you reach the top, you can admire spectacular summit views and amazing alpine scenery. Mount Fernow is a great climb for experienced mountain climbers. If you visit the mountain in early season, take an ice axe and crampons with you.
