Description

The Rolling Stones Wall is made up of the same featured granite conglomerate as found on Tradistan Tower and around the rest of the Lower Pine River area. The rock is generally good-quality, but expect some looseness, lichen, and overall adventure – these are the San Juans! There are corners, cracks, roofs, and features all over the wall, so route-finding can be tricky. It's not a bad idea to try to pick out some prominent features on the hike in, giving yourself some points of reference once on the wall.

Getting There

To get to the wall, follow the approach to near the base of Tradistan Tower, then traverse the base left, around the toe of Tradistan and almost past the Rolling Stones Wall. Scramble up left and follow ledges back right to the base of the wall proper. It is ~1.5 hours from the trailhead.

This is a pretty fun wall, watch for the bees. We have climbed two routes on this wall previously and have not found any old abandoned gear anywhere on this wall yet. Thanks for posting! Aug 9, 2013
