Jeff and NSis Conditions


Recommended Posts

Anyone been up Jefferson or North Sister recently? Wondering on conditions. Currently looking at the South Ridge on Jefferson and the South/Southeast Ridge on North Sister. Would love first-hand info on the traverses. Any info you can pass along is greatly appreciated!

It wasn't that bad. The same looseness/exposure as the traverse from red saddle to the NW side of the pinnacle, but for several thousand feet...


Went in via Pamelia. A leisurely 12 hours c2c. Trekking poles and a light pack help on the scree.



With no crampons or axe, I had to skirt the snow below to the south (left).
