What is a good topo map and guide book to get for the area from Red Mountain Pass to Silverton?

I have these areas in mind and like to know approach and descent beta, like where to park, what approach route to take, etc. Not looking for an "epic" run but a couple nice uneventful days out in the San Juan Mountains :D And yes, I'll do my avalanche homework. Thanks.

- McMillan's
- Anvil
- King Soloman
- Chattanooga
- What else?

Dont know of any books but I was up there last year. Parking is obvious at the top of the pass. From there we headed east up some county road, past some huts and stuff. It looked like it went pretty far east. If your planning a descent into the town proper, I'd say scout it from below so you don't end up in some horrendous bushwack. Better yet, plan on coming back out on another county road a bit below treeline to avoid the bushwack.

There is a decent amount of private land up there, so be aware. The National Geographic laminated maps should tell you everything you need to know.
