signed from the summit  Sucess!

My buddy’s phone has service, so i figured i should sign both climbers logs at the same time. we got a little off trail, but if you stick to the trail it should be mostly class 2. great views!

Fun but not easy  Sucess!

Climbing all those rocks on fresh snow requires a different kind of careful

7FJ and Maude  Sucess!

Both peaks are pretty nice. Outside of the regular trail down below, pretty much had the entire area to ourselves. The trail is in very good shape overall with some minor blowdowns. Plenty of camping spots with easy access to water. We even got a fire going to stay warm in the cool evening. Did 7FJ on Saturday and Maude on Sunday. 7FJ has a few snow crossings so an ice axe is very useful but no spikes needed. Rock is a bit tedious near summit for sure. You can invent some scramble routes if you want to make things more interesting. Views were very nice of all the surrounding peaks. Took the gully down. Watch your step because I slipped and fell and crashed into the side of the gully. Maude was less exciting. The gully route is just a lot of choss and talus. The ridge is an easy walkup to summit. It was snowing up here so no views. Tried to get clever and took some random gully down to camp. It ended up being crazy dangerous and we nearly kicked some big boulders down on our own group. Might as well have just taken the trail all the way down. These peaks are the ones that seem like they should be fast but end up taking a lot longer than you think.

SW slope  Sucess!

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

Scramble  Sucess!

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!

Scree filled paradise  Sucess!

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.

Seven Fingered Jack, Fernow, Maude, North Spectacle Butte, Freezer, Ice Box, Carne  Sucess!

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 Coulior to the SW Slope  Sucess!

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.

'Sup there, Supermarmot. Had to look at your fat backside the whole way.
