South Ridge of Mount Jefferson

The South Ridge of Mount Jefferson is a physically demanding climb that will challenge the intermediate to advanced climber with a bit of steep snow and rock climbing. We’ll start our approach from the west side of the mountain heading towards the Pamelia Lake area.  We’ll stage our base camp high on the mountain putting us in a good position for a big summit day on day two.  Our summit day will find climbers traversing high and exposed snowfields and eventually onto some low fifth class rock leading to the summit.  We’ll head back to camp to rest and refuel after our big summit day, in preparation for our hike out on day three.

This route is a good choice for climbers who have done a few other alpine climbs before. Participants should be comfortable on steep snow and easy fifth class rock.


We are able to schedule this program Mondays- Thursdays only!
