Hiked in and camped around the base of the mountain. Did some small outlier peaks but nothing hardcore.

We did "Cloud man got Angry" a recently established route at the time that joins with Born of Water 3 pitches from the top. An awesome peak. Anyone have beta on the Spring Route?

Eric Tipton"Born of Water"  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 28, 2006
I climbed this peak with Brad Singer. This climb was like other Arizona climbs I've done in that you climb in such an awesome setting. The Born of Water route differed from my arizona experiance in that it was well protected. probably to well protected but I clipped all the bolts anyways. Just when we thought we had the route whipped Brad pulled a 100 lb. boulder into his lap and got a little beat up. Stay off the lichen covered rock. Brad surrvived and we made the summit. Decended the "Forbes/Montoya" route. We approached from the west side and it took us 13 hours car to car. Good route, great partner, Awesome Peak.

tdoughtySE Arete  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 16, 2006


From the West campground, up good, but overgrown trail. Well beaten-out trail along south side of rock along lion's Ledge to start of route. Worth the couple of minutes to go around the corner, before you head up, just to check out the East face. Some pitches easily linked. Seems like all pitches have a little technical climbing, then lots of scrambling to the belay point. And then more scrambling to the base of the last, short pitch (fixed pin gone?). Last pitch passes easily left of stacked blocks on the arĂȘte along a ledge about 6', then up past a horizontal crack (good pro) and ledge (8'), then back right and up to tree. Long scramble to top. Many presents left on top. Down Forbes route. 13 hour day, car to car (recovering from illness) wonderful day. No clouds, light breeze.

Nice climb. Very different from what I'm used to in Colorado.

RyanSRoute Climbed: Forbes Route Date Climbed: March 24, 2005  Sucess!


This was my first roped climb. What a beauty of peak for that landmark in my short career of peakbagging! I contend that the approach from the Indian reservation is the more scenic. Despite the incredible views of Babo from the Thomas Canyon approach, I don't see how it can top the views of the amazing cliffs of Baboquivari Canyon and the other spectacular ridges that reach from the range crest into the Babo Valley. This is a very special place, highly recommended!! A trip report is available here.

AndinistalocoRoute Climbed: SE Arete Date Climbed: 1997?  Sucess!


One of my favorite climbs... great rock and even better exposure. Some 5-6 pitches of 5.6 or so...

I would recommend descending the Forbes route after climbing this; you'll probably only have to rap once. Just get off the summit early or you'll never find the way down!

asmrzRoute Climbed: SouthEast Arete from Lion's Ledge Date Climbed: April 5th 2003  Sucess!


Robert Somoano, Penelope May and I climbed the classic SE Arete of Babo on April 5th 2003. Had a great time climbing the 4 1/2 pitches (we had 60 m ropes) and scrambled up the rest. We decided to rap the route, a distinct mistake as it took us almost 5 hours to do so. The strong, cold wind from the south, didn't help. Fortunately, the ropes got stuck only once. We would recommend the route but not the rap. Try the Forbes route down instead.

Very nice peak! West side approach much longer than East although the Baboquivari Park campground is well maintained as is the trail. From campsite to peak is approx. 4 1/2 Miles with an elevation gain of 4,400'. This is a fee area to avoid stay on East side (B.L.M.) pay attention not to stray on nearby private land.
