Copper and Iron are peaks located on the west side of Mt. Rainier National Park. Approach can be made from Longmire, Kautz Creek, or Tahoma Creek to Indian Henry's Hunting ground. From the ranger's summer cabin, head in an easterly direction on a footpath and gain the saddle between the 2 peaks. The route up Copper heads up a gully just west of the ridge to the peak. The route to Iron drops south below some rocky outcroppings and heads up a gully.
