Abstract: We present an infrared adaptation of the Cluster Red-Sequence method. We modify the two filter technique of Gladders & Yee (2000) to identify clusters based on their R − [3.6] color. We apply the technique to the 4 degree2 Spitzer First Look Survey and detect 123 clusters spanning the redshift range 0.09 < z < 1.4. Our results demonstrate that the Spitzer Space Telescope will play an important role in the discovery of large samples of high redshift galaxy clusters.
