Mt. Jefferson is the second highest mountain in Oregon. This route is a complex undertaking with significant routefinding and requires a range of solid mountaineering skills, from steep snow and maybe ice, crumbly exposed rock (love those portable handholds!) and good stamina. Like all Jefferson routes, long days and unexpected bivys can be common.
