Buck Mountain is located in Grand Teton National Park in the southern end of the Teton Range. It's the highest Teton peak south of South Teton. 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. Ortenburger for climbing route information on Buck Mountain.
