    Down Skipper/Buck Gulch, up Strawberry Jack.....

    ....or down Strawberry Jack, up Buck Gulch? The BC route thread has some of both.

    What say you?!

    Buck is a super fast, steep, smooth but sand-slick, fun descent - pretty much a straight shot down the hill. The climb is a killer, especially if the trail is really dry and loose.

    Strawberry is also a fun descent though not as fast or steep for as long as Buck, with just a touch more variety and a couple of short climbs during the overall descent. The climb is a bit more manageable with a couple of crux moves in the middle.

    I like them both.

    If starting from Pine Valley TH, I always climb Buck Gulch. I think it is the better climb of the two.

    I dig coming down Strawberry Jack. Its got more twist in flow as a downhill. Buck Gulch isn't bad but its wide and straight with exception of a few sections which makes it a better climb imho.
