Mt. Jefferson, the second highest mountain in Oregon, is a challenge by any route. The Whitewater route is a LONG day, with a 12 mile total climb across the largest glacier in Oregon. Leave wands on the way up so you can use them on the way back. This route is technically easier then Jeff Park Glacier.
