Mt. Jefferson Climb

OPB | Feb. 1, 1994 7:30 p.m.

Mt. Jefferson has a bad reputation of being the most difficult volcano to climb in Oregon. Join our team along as we take on the dangerous journey to the summit, and witness the total isolationism that so many climbers with independent spirits seek. With passages like the so-called “death route”, huge jagged rocks, and unexpected fogs, find out why climbers put themselves in harms way to summit Mt. Jefferson.

First Broadcast: 1994
