Description

South Mineral Creek road can be crowded in the summer because of access to Ice Lakes Basin, but Rolling Mountain is relatively left alone. It is a decaying mountain with the expected San Juan choss. There is little quality rock on this mountain. The normal route is the East Ridge, which can be a fun class 3 scramble.

Getting There

North of Silverton a few miles on US 550 there is a turn off on the left to South Mineral Campground. Drive all the way up South Mineral Creek Rd. (4x4 recommended). When you can no longer drive any further, park. Rolling Mountain is the prominent peak to the SW. Hike up into the basin to your West to gain access to the North Face.
