One of the coveted 9,000 foot peaks of the North Cascades, Buckner is much more of a mountaineer's summit than Sahale. It is not a difficult climb when done with caution, but some loose rock is unpleasant. This is a more moderate route than the classic North Face. Camping high on the beautiful Sahale Arm Area adds to the attraction. This route has a rather long approach and climb day.
