Baboquivari's pinnacle, as viewed on our ascent
Starting up the base of the Great Ramp
Kelley and Peavy work up the chockstone
The summit is mere feet away!
There they are
North view, Kitt Peak and Coyote Peak
South view into Mexico
Kelley and Peavy at the top
And me, too
The top of the Great Ramp, heading down
The bottom part, where five points of contact is advised
Departing view. The Lion's Ledge is the vegetated ramp angling right, and the Great Ramp starts about half-way and angles up and left. The Ladder Pitch is in the shadow at the left end of the Great Ramp
Broader view farther out. How did we climb that thing?
Baboquivari at last light from the campground. The end of a long, but rewarding day!
