Description 

up to 1000' east wall which tops out just below true summit of Babo's peak. Rock varies from bad to "french bread",to decent. Southern AZ's only grade VI walls. While climbing can be done all year round, the dryer parts of spring and fall are the best. Summer can be very humid and dangerous with monsoon lightning common.


Getting There 

Follow directions to the east side Riggs ranch. Continue through corrals to gain trail to saddle. To gain lions ledge, hike to within 300' of the saddle on east side. At "6" agaves, take trail to left. contour to gully and climb up and left passing cairns. A cut off for Humongous Woosey (5.10, A.0) is on this part of the route. Continue through brush until the ledge system heading off to south appears. Some scrambling allows access to the main wall routes (right to left - UT, Dreams, Luca, Fellowship, Spring route etc.). Allow 2 - 2.5 hours with load.

Southeast Arete 5.6 4c 14 V S 4b  AZ : Southern Arizona : ... : East Face
A long, fun backcountry climb that has fantastic views and exposure! The Bob Kerry guide gives it three stars.Between the approach, climb and descent, expect to spend a long day on the rock. Bring plenty of water and if you stray during the approach, climb, or descent (which is easy to do), expect to be in the dark and prepare accordingly.See the following for just such an experience: www.climbaz.com/climbs/baboquivari_je/justin.htmlNote that there is a tradition of taking I'itoi a gi...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
