How to Climb ice in Oregon in May

Step 1)   Refer to, How to climb ice in Oregon in March.

Step 2)   Do that, because the ice is still there.

Its bleached and sugary on the surface, and may not last too much longer.  So go get it now, cause, where else ya gunna go find water ice in May.

This climb is called "The Cooper 30"    It's 30 meters tall and hangs off Cooper Spur above the Eastern side of the Eliot Glacier at 8000 feet elevation.   It forms early, I've climbed it in mid November.   And it lasts late, this year I climbed it in May.   Where else can you go locally and find water ice that lasts 6 months of the year?    Some years there's a whole mess of other ice handing up there too.   Head in from "Tilly Jane" trail head 5 plus miles.   In the summer when the road is open you can drive all the way up to "Cloud Cap"
