Posted On: 2014-09-10, By: TravelingMatt
Info: I took the Rico-Silverton Trail most of the way to 12500‘ Rolling Pass, then negotiated grass/willows/scree to gain the SE ridge of Rolling. Negotiating the few hundred vertical feet of loose scree between trail and ridge is worth the cost of admission to the much more stable, gentle, picturesque ridge. The Rico-Silverton Trail has a couple of tricky creek crossings, one right at the start and another about ¾ mile in. Recommend stashing sandals for the first crossing; you can cross the higher one by scooting along a log some 150‘ downstream. The NE ridge of Rolling sucks.
