Mount Jerram

Featured photo of Mount Jerram

Another one of the impressive peaks in the Opal Range which has a steep west face and ridge which is quite aesthetic. The face and ridge are home to a difficult steep route which was the first ascent route, but it is not climbed that often.

Named in 1922 after Sir Thomas Jerram who as an Admiral commanded the Royal Navy's Second Battle Squadron during the Battle of Jutland in World War I.

Access is from the King Canyon Parking area. Follow the old trail with numerous creek crossing then at the head of the valley below Mount Blane turn left. Access can also be made from the Opal Falls slot parking then following a trail toward the cliffs.
