Mount Buckindy

Featured photo of Mount Buckindy

Mount Buckindy is located in the Glacier Peak Wilderness and is a central summit of a larger group of peaks known as Buckindy Ridge, or the Buckindy Range. The fact that this peak was not successfully climbed until the year 1963 is a testament to this remote area of rugged wilderness. The Kindy Glacier occupies the north slope of Buckindy. The characteristic reddish rock of Buckindy is due to mineralized breccia pipe. The long approach starts from the Green Mountain Trail off of the Suiattle River Road.
