Ascent Trip Report

Started at 4400' at end of Barber Creek Road. Steep bushwack up to Pt 7939. Really slow getting thru about 1500' vertical of burn and blowdown, but it became more grassy and open higher up. Followed ridge to South Holland, then Holland Pk. Met two guys from Libby near top and hiked last bit with them. Clear, calm. Walked ridge south and went up Buck Peak(9003'). Last 300' up steep, loose gullies on NW side, class 3+, steeper than anything on Holland. Descended via Buck Creek. The upper part of this drainage wasnt too bad brush wise, but the lower 2500' was largely a mess of crisscrossed deadfall. No real game trails. 10.5 hours RT incuding breaks. The bushwacking wore me down, if you are only interested in Holland, stick to the usual route via climbers trail to Rumble Lakes.
