shanahan96the copeland boulder hop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 23, 2016


easily the most strenuous, unrelenting boulder hopping i've ever encountered. copeland's north face may look like a nice day, but beware of the thousands of boulders one will be forced to cross en route. yuck!

McCannsterSlog is an understatement  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 13, 2011


...but I do like an occasional slog. A well packed boot track most of the way to Ouzel Lake combined with good weather made this December ascent possible. Something like 14.5 miles RT from the winter parking, 10.5 hours car to car. Awesome views of Longs/Meeker.

Date Climbed: Oct 28, 2010


A long day cross country from Ouzel falls with Kevin (shknbk). RT mileage was about 12.5mi. Plowing through feet of powder made for a 13h epic. Windy and cold on top but clear skies with great views!

SarahThompsonEast Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 13, 2007


5/13/07 - This was my first trip to the Wild Basin area and I have to admit that I was highly impressed. Area was still covered in snow. Left trail at Ouzel Falls and headed SW through the trees to gain Copeland's east ridge. On the way back we descended to Ouzel Lake and followed the trail from there.

1/10/2015 - From Allenspark Trailhead. Hiked to Pear Lake and climbed a short south facing couloir to gain the east ridge. Amazingly hard and consolidated snow for January!

NanitaDRoute: From Ouzel Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 1991


I climbed this solo from the Ouzel Lake side. I saw another climber decending below me on the east ridge as I was going up the north east side. When I finally reached the summit after the long (unending) tundra slope I couldn't get the lid off of the summit register, so I took a self timed photo of myself and a panorama from the summit. Even though it is not difficult climbing it is a long day with 4646ft of elevation gain.
