A 4 day trip with Heather right after she returned from her speed record hike of the Appalachian Trail. Maude was a mellow peak with a lovely view. Check out the trip report for more details.
Beautiful day to climb! Followed the climbers path from the Leroy basin all the way down to the southwest ridge, down into some snow and back up to the shoulder. Great views!
Long day hike up Leroy Basin...went up 7FJ first then traversed over to Maude. Got stuck traversing the entire west face of Maude because I ascended too soon! Made it more interesting though.
decided to do a solo day trip up maude to get myself in shape for an upcoming trip to the himalayas. started in before it got light, and got back to the car after it got dark. it was a long tiresome day, but so beautiful none the less. great weather and I met a very fat, lazy, and friendly marmot along the trail.
Part of a week long trip in the Entiat highlands, went up the easy SE side. I remember acting a little too casual around the cliffy summit and being sharply reprimanded
What a gorgeous area! I took the Carne Mountain high route...much more scenic and went cross-country from Chipmunk Creek basin to Ice Lakes. I'm hoping to come back for South Spectacle Butte and 7 Fingers later via Leroy Basin.
Climbed this monster in a day with Montana and the MVP. A long day trip from Seattle!
Camped on ridge between Ice Lakes and Phelps River Valley. Great views of Maude from easy stroll up Freezer Peak (8033\8017) the evening before. Map and pics at http://www.willhiteweb.com/washington_climbing/mount_maude/seven_fingered_jack_130.htm
via CMHR during peak larch season.
This was a pretty cool way to celebrate my birthday eve!
This was a great trip. Went in via Leroy Creek High Route and camped in Leroy Creek Basin. Amazing views of Glacier Peak.
Nice camping in the Leroy Creek basin. Took this gully up (class 4+) and steep slope to pop out high up on the ridge. came back from saddle above Ice Lakes and lost trail. I could see the basin where my camp was and just bushwhacked in that direction until I got back to the trail.
My good friend Joanna wanted to help my brother Josh celebrate his birthday. We had a wonderful time eating cake and taking in views of the surrounding peaks opening up with larches.
Hot, loose class 3. 11:13 for the triple is insane -- I don't think I could come close.
My first mountain, thanks to Bob Bolton and Duane Gilliland.
I was in my mid teens at the time and climbed with some old steel toed work boots which were incredibly slick and cold. Good memories! I've been hooked on Mountains ever since!
Approach via Leroy Cr with R3. Good hike up with snow slide on way down. Recommend the high route on the way out, little bushy, but very beautiful.
Started from Leroy Basin, climbed 7FJ and traversed over to Maude. Awesome weather.
Fernow-Maude-7FJ Speed Climb record of 11:13.
I took the route described by Eric Hoffman. Class 3 and the start was very close to my campsite in the upper basin. Camp at the moraine between 7FJ and Maude if doing both in a two day trip. The wide scree gully below the normal route was a quick dirty descent back to camp. Gaiters are recommended.
