Buck has been working in the outdoor industry since 2006 when he started his first job working at a local climbing and hiking outfitter in Southern California. After college, Buck found his way onto the Yosemite Search and Rescue team where he spent three years participating in a wide variety of backcountry rescue operations that included everything from high angle rescues on El Capitan to multiday searches deep in the backcountry. After his time in Yosemite, he spent five years working for and managing one of the largest indoor climbing route setting crews in the world. These days you can find him chasing the seasons in his van, trying to get his hands and feet moving over as much wild rock as possible.
