Description

Bucksnort Slab contains many quality, although difficult (5.10-5.11 range) slab climbs, as well as some disjunct cracks and the classic Crack of Anticipation (aka Classic Dihedral), a 150-foot 5.7 crack. The descent from most routes can be via either a walkoff or rappel.

Eds.: This area has been the scene of various bolt wars and the status of some climbs unclear at this time.

Getting There

From Pine (see area description), take Elk Creek Road 2.2 miles east. Bucksnort Slab will be obvious from this point, rising up directly north of the road. Parking is limited right in front of the crag, so you may have to go another 0.2 mile and walk back.

Bucksnort Saloon

Note, the Bucksnort is typically closed on Wednesdays (just so you won't get disappointed).
