      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Mt Jefferson Northside Routes

Recommended Posts

Looking at hitting Jefferson in a few days. Was thinking about hitting the North Ridge but can't find a lot of beta about trying to solo it this late season with no snow. Is this a terrible idea, are there any Northside routes that would be in (atleast kind of) right now with out a lot of ice.

Solo the north side of Jeff in bare condition? I seem to recall a TR from a couple years ago...

.Is this a terrible idea.....

 

 

Holy fuck I suspect it would be spicy. I only have experience on it iced over, and it seemed spicy then (ie, no pro and people tied together). Timberline is always open for skiing now and I saw they closed for lack of snow, so only someone who's been on it recently in it's dry state could give a solid comment (heh heh, "solid" comment) I couldn't imagine it with out the ice. I don't think it's a high likelihood that you'd get beaned by rocks although it's still low probability, and that would be my biggest fear.

 

Bet a nice trip up jeff park glacier and it wouldn't be too committing if you chose to turn around cause the rock was crap (I suspect it is). The crevasse must be wide open, so you'd have no surprises there although it might be work getting around it. Might be a good day of hanging on the Mt and some ice climbing on the schrund even if you chose not to go for it.

 

Have fun and let us know how it goes.

I was at Jeff Park this past weekend camping. I was initially planning to go play on the glacier a bit, but decided to just swim in scout lake after seeing it's state. Here's a shot of Jeff Park glacier for your viewing pleasure.JeffPark.jpg
