Cooper-Kor, V, 5.10

Access the Pigeon Fork-Bugaboo Glacier which is located on the northeast side of Snowpatch Spire. Put on your crampons and ascend the ice, staying right on the glacier, until the east face of Pigeon Spire comes into full view. Continue as though you were going for the west ridge via this approach. Veer off to the right as soon as you are at a height that comfortably puts you above the eastern bergschrund of Pigeon. Traverse above the bergschrund to the moat at the very eastern corner of the face. The route starts among this jumbled looking granite that leads to a perfect hand rail crack that serves as the first pitch of Cooper-Kor.
