The scree is pretty frustrating but a fun puzzle to solve!

I planned an overnight trip to summit both Seven Fingered Jack and Maude. I took an overnight pack up to the upper Leroy Basin at 6800 and set up camp before summiting Seven Fingered Jack. I took a scramble route to the left of the snow couloir (which had no snow when I was there) outlined here. It was sketchy getting across the couloir but fun class 3 scrambling from there up to the summit. I took standard trail down to the 7FJ Maude saddle where I traversed half way across to Maude before deciding I wanted to head home and spend Sunday with my family. This made for a looooong day for me 11 1/2 hours car to car half of it carrying a full overnight pack plus 4 1/2 hours driving each way. Beautiful area! I will be back for Maude!

Did this one as a day trip, 12 hours roundtrip including a few stops for lunch and enjoying the view. Routefinding is pretty straightforward but the scree hopping does get old after a while. I stayed pretty close up under the spires and that was a pleasant route. I saw some people taking a gully/ridge up on the left above some cliffs, looked like a bad option as a fall would be nasty I'd stick under the face.

A 4 day trip with Heather right after she returned from her speed record hike of the Appalachian Trail. We hiked up Seven Fingered Jack the first day, just before dusk. Check out the trip report for more details.

1st attempt, September 6, 2008:
I spent the previous night a few miles down the trail to allow an early start the next day. Moving fast in the predawn darkness, I overshot the Leroy Creek turnoff and was halfway to Spider Gap before I realized my mistake. I came back and followed what I thought was Leroy creek up a couple thousand feet. Studying the map, I realized that it was the wrong creek. Rather than spend a second night and trying again the next day, I decided to come back another time.

Snow in the eastern range? Enough to put on crampons? I couldn't believe it. After a Maude morning though, I started to get sick of the talus on the second half of the climb. The views were amazing.

Ugh! After summitting Maude that morning we started up at 6600 feet from somewhere between the two. The going was fine to 7800 feet but after that a tangle of scree, talus, 3rd class benches and heather. The only redeeeming factors were spectacular exposure from the summit eastward and an unobstructed wide-angle view of the "classic" north face of Maude. Summitted at 4, back in camp in Leroy Basin at 6.

Tried to stay just right of the gully, scrambling fun rock ledges, avoiding alot of the loose scree that we encountered on the descent. The most difficult part of the weekend was getting across the huge washout on the way over to the Ice Lakes and Maude. Combined this with a scramble of Maude and a Friday evening hike up to the summit of Carne mountain.
