Ascent Trip ReportAttempted to day trip Maude, but with 4-12" of fresh powder starting in Leroy Basin, progress was pretty slow. Took us about 4.5 hours to reach the 7500' saddle near Ice Lake, after which point we decided to cut our losses. The summit ridge was definitely still doable, but I'd guess it would have taken us about 2 hours to do the remaining 1500' to the summit. Scrambled up Freezer instead to get some good summit views.
