A distinctive, rocky peak on the Tohono O'odham Reservation. Several different routes, ranging from 5.6 to 5.11C free, or 5.11- A4. A beautiful summit, with expansive views. Baboquivari is on the TohonoO'Odham Nation and is the Holy dwelling of their God, Litoi. The summit block is a rhyolite volcanic plug reminiscent of the Matterhorn. Sometimes is referred to as the Matterhorn of the Southwest. The most popular route and the descent route is the Forbes Route which is 4th class with one protected pitch of 5.4. Another popular technical route is the S.E. Arʹe with good exposure on fine rock. My partner and I have done this route and it is a fine day of climbing.
