The Rico-Silverton Trail is the start of the appoach to Rolling Mountain. Hike south towards South Park on a nice trail. At South Park, climb west up into the basin east of Rolling. Once in the basin, stay to the south side of the creek, it is easier this way. Ascend the basin on talus, staying to the southern side, to the southeast ridge. The final portion of the slope does require some scrambling on loose rock to get to the ridge.

Route Description

After scrambling your way to the ridge it is relatively straightforward where the route goes. Follow the ridge all the way to the summit. This requires some more scrambling over some large and loose rocks. The route is not difficult (no more than class 3), but care should be taken due to the amount of loose rock that blankets Rolling.

Essential Gear

No special gear is required. An ice axe if you are planning a snow climb, otherwise just bring the basic essentials.
