Cooper Spur

Cooper Spur ascends the prominent spur on the north side of the Newton Clark Glacier.  Our two-day itinerary starts at the Timberline Lodge. We will use the chairlift to reach 8,400 feet on the South Side of the mountain. From there we will jump right in to glacier travel, dropping onto the White River Glacier. After crossing it, and ascending up to the shoulder of the Wy’east, we will continue roped travel across the Newton-Clark Glacier, eventually reaching our camp at near tie-in rock, at the base of the Cooper Spur. Here we’ll spend the night enjoying views of Mount Adams, Rainier and Saint Helens across the Columbia River in Washington. We will wake for an alpine start the next morning, packing up our camp to carry our supplies over the top of the mountain. The climb up Cooper Spur features a couple thousand feet of steep and exposed climbing as it passes through some bands of rock.  We will descend back down one of the South side routes.  Climbers need to be prepared for long and sustained climbing while carrying an overnight pack. Your guide will help you learn to pare your pack down to the minimal necessities in order to keep it light, while still having all the gear that you need for a comfortable trip.
