Precipitation on Buck Mountain drains to the Pacific Ocean via the Snake and Columbia rivers. It's a class 3 scramble to the summit, but technical routes are optional. The mountain is named for George A. Buck who was a member of the first ascent party. Refer to "A Climber's Guide to the Teton Range" by Leigh N.
