The East Face route, though seldom climbed, offers a direct line up the aesthetic steep snow above the Whitewater Glacier on the east side of Mt. Jefferson. As this route gets the first sun, be on it early and move fast to avoid softening snow, minimize avalanche risk and decrease rocks bombing you from the North Ridge. Helmets mandatory.
