BobD3From campsite at Lower McGee lake   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2017


Should have followed the use trail directly up the ridge to the summit from McGee Pass. There's no advantage to dropping down the west side of the pass and then climbing to the summit.

RomainFrom Gemini Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2016


From camp at Bighorn Lake, up to Gemini Pass and then onto the West slopes. In a sort of blizzard, but at least the snow conditions leading up to the pass were perfect. Started to snow on me on the summit (itself still snow-capped). The next day, winter returned to the Mammoth area. That made things memorable.

Summited from the SE Slopes from McGee Pass. Warm down low, but cool up high! Visibility was reduced due to fires in the Sierra.

Surprisingly quick solo day under 12 hours from McGee Ck trailhead. Beautiful weather and relatively stable stone to scramble upon. Views are stupendous!

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2014


Day hiked this one with Tommey. After getting to the top, we took one look at the ridge between McGee Pass and Red & White and decided it was too much of an adventure. Descended the trail to 11000' before climbing Red & White via the standard route.

WayneFryNorth Couloir via Convict Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2013


Beautiful mountain and a great route. Climbed it with a team of four from Sierra Mountaineering Group. We approached from Convict canyon and base camped at Dorothy lake. The overall route was a fun mix of rock ice and snow and we were able to climb the entire length of the couloir to the summit. Timeline on this one was up at 3, out of camp at 4, at the base of the couloir at 6, on the summit at 11, and back at basecamp at 2.

A long, fun styrofoam romp, once I made the very tricky stream crossing and found my way to the base of the couloir. Trip report

Date Climbed: Oct 16, 2011


Climbed from Lake Dorothy. Couloir was mostly snow (post-holing) from last week's storm. A few veins of ice sped progress. Wallowed across the upper traverse, although the last pitch was firm. Looking forward to skiing this!

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2011
Perfect sunny whether and still enough snow left to speed up summit ascent and descent. The lakes were still frozen and the creek was quite swift. Very swift. Nice "spring" flowers on the way ... and Mr. (or Mrs) marmot stopped by the camp. Liked it!

Date Climbed: Sep 13, 2010


Popular mountain: about seventy parties signed up SPS summit register thus far in 2010. Last ascent in 2009 was on October 10, first ascent this year on March 17 (wow!). It took me about 3 hours from Big McGee Lake and McGee Pass to the summit.

Camped three nights July 4th weekend at Lake Mildred, just managed to avoid mosquitos. Climbed Baldwin on day 2 and Red Slate from Dorothy on day 3. Was a little spicy up the the saddle for a distance, due to no axe or crampons.

Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2009


We dayhiked it from camp at Big McGee Lake. We followed a use trail from McGee Pass to the summit - it was all hiking except for the steep, loose band of gray rock below the top. Beautiful hike in to Big McGee Lake and great views from the summit.

Pictures and trip report from our Red Slate Mountain climb.

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 1985


Camped near Convict Creek with Dave and his wife, Rhoda. On previous trips, he'd already climbed Red Slate and I'd already climbed Baldwin, so we exchanged beta and 'traded peaks'. I arose much earlier and made it to the top of 'my' mountain first and was able to spot him climbing Baldwin through my telephoto lens. Rhoda, a botanist (not a climber), enjoyed a day among the High Sierra wildflowers. A perfect day for all!

We dubbed it Red Plate Mountain with the sounds walking up. Awesome views from here. One of my favorites so far.

Date Climbed: Mar 29, 2009


We were a group of 8 skiers, some of us climbed the couloir and skied it. Nice and windy day. I got to the summit directly climbing the rock part.
