Mount Spurr Climbing Notes

AlaskaBarb from UNITED STATES writes:

Pretty crevasse-y on three sides. Bring your ladder.

Approaching from the west side of Cook Inlet, it’s a 30+ mile slog up a braided stream that connects to the east side of Chakachatna River to approach the southeast, or south side, from a second connecting stream, or by float plane to Chakachamna Lake on southwest side. From there, it’s only 8 or 9 miles up an old lahar channel on the mountain slope, with fewer bears. Spurr is an active volcano that last erupted in the late summer of 1992, so there’s that. Ash remnants of the eruption are still evident on the lower slopes. The nearest settlement is probably Tyonek, or around Beluga Power Plant, which are both next to Cook Inlet. If anyone has found an easier approach, please correct me.
