The Baby Gap

Arizona > Southern Arizona > Farmhouse > 1 - The Gap
Access Issue: Access trail crosses a private ranch. READ PARKING REQUIREMENTS BELOW ! Details

Description

This is the north side of the gully that separates The Prow from the rest of the cliff band. This is separated from Mine The Gap by a saddle that allows access to the cliff top. It has shade all day save for a couple hours in the afternoon where the sun peaks into the gully. Nothing but crazy chert pulling so far, but there seems to be lots of potential here. More to come!

Getting There

  • *LOOSE ROCK WARNING** When approaching the prow from the approach trail, head up the drainage that meets an obvious gully scramble, straight up. If you've reached The Coop you've gone too far. Climb the right side of the gully for the most stable rock. Routes are on the east side of the gully on the obvious glassy, chert featured black limestone.

[Hide Comment] For those willing to venture up this gulley, please take the loose rock warning seriously and beware of those below you. This area is a work in progress and a legitimate path up the gulley, removal of hazards, and belay landings are all future likelihoods. I think when the above improvements begin you can essentially add a star to any of the climbs that will be put up here. The rock is some of the best at The Farmhouse. Oct 18, 2018
