Mount Roots is a mainly snow-covered mountain on South Georgia, standing near the head of Nordenskjold Glacier, 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) ESE of Mount Paget. Its western peak rises to 2,158 metres (7,080 ft); its eastern peak to 2,270 metres (7,450 ft). The mountain, fifth-highest on the island, is a prominent feature and presumably was known to whalers and sealers in South Georgia at an early date.
The first ascent was made by British climbers Will Manners and Stuart Macdonald on the north buttress in January 2001.
