Mount Buckindy is located at the head of Kindy Creek in the northern Washington Cascades. Glaciers are present on the mountain's north and east flanks. The standard summit route is a Class 4 scramble via the north slopes. The southwest ridge contains a series of jagged pinnacles (Buckindy Crags) that offer some Class 5 routes.
