Buckner Mountain (also called Mt. Buckner) is one of the titans of the North Cascades and is located within North Cascades National Park. Buckner provides a grand view from its summit of the many peaks of the North Cascades range. Many climbers are attracted to its challenging North Face which is reached by the Boston Glacier. However, the Southwest Face offers a non-technical class 3 slope which requires only ice axe and crampons. Gain access to the SW slope from Horseshoe Basin, or via a traverse from Sahale Mountain above Horseshoe Basin. Mt. Buckner is named for Henry F. Buckner, the manager of a mining company with claims in Horseshoe Basin.
