RomainConvict Canyon to West slopes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 7, 2016


Excellent hike, very interesting geology. I found a use trail all the way to the summit, and only encountered one class 2 move (use of hands for balance). Highly recommended. 9h15 car to car with a generous top on the summit.

Other than the scenery and calcite, the trek from Convict Lake to summit was too sloggy, was hoping for more scrambling.

With DR. Took a bit over 6 hours to reach the summit from Convict lake. Nearly took the wrong chute descending from the summit plateau. Unique sierra scenery - very colorful.

cabConvict Lake via Mildred Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2013


Dayhike starting at Convict Lake via Mildred Lake. Crossing Convict Creek required taking off my shoes because of very slippery rocks, but otherwise wasn't difficult. I saw a rabbit above the calcite mine at around 12,100' which was unexpected. Pretty great views from the summit.

A killer summit view. Hiked up the Bright dot lake drainage to gain the summit then descended into the Mildred lake basin. About a 17 mile round trip.

xharvDay hike from Convict Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2012


Six hours from the day-use parking lot at Convict Lake to the summit via "standard route", solo. Convict Creek was tame and easy to cross. Amazing t-shirt weather at the top on the last day of September! About twenty-five parties visited the peak this season so far. As calipidder says (below), the steep, slippery chute just below the mine is somewhat sketchy. Other than that, a couple of fair 'use trails' get you from Mildred almost to the summit. Trip report.

Really fun peak with unique scenery - the moonscape plateau felt more like Death Valley than the Sierra. Only sketchiness was just below the calcite mine - went up the sandy track and down the solid rock. Should have done the reverse.

Great views from the top. The view of Convict Canyon is especially dramatic.

Camped at fantastic Mildred Lake and then up the NW slope to the summit, over to Red Slate the next day. Great July 4th weekend!

Failed twice before, once on the east face because I was too scared, and once on the west face because I was too tired. Finally made it up with son Stephen, who wanted to see the crystals, and brother Jon.
