This route has the unique distinction of being the only sport climb at the Creek, and a great one at that! Let 'R Buck makes for a good end of the day/weekend/month trip climb when your paws and feet are too sore to shove in any more cracks. Located to the right of Binou's Crack.
The crux on this route is getting to the second bolt. If you botched the sequence right at the bolt, then you might hit the deck (or come really close). Having the second bolt clipped is nice, but maybe not necessary with an attentive belay. After the third bolt, the climbing is superb and balancey and in the 5.11 range. The rock on this route is awesome and moves are memorable.

Steve Petro, Lisa Gnade, and myself did the first ascent of Let 'er Buck back in the early 90's.

Great route! Much better than I thought it was going to be. Clipping the second bolt will leave you puckered, but the rest of the climbing is really really fun, great change from tight hand cracks and off finger routes.

Good route. Hard start (b1 to b2) and clipping 3rd bolt is bit scary (blow it and you're on the ground). Nice intricate climbing afterwards with good rests in between. 5.12b.
