Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
led by Matt Hengst, Neil Robbins

Matt's 2nd E-rock Provisional Outing. We spent three days in Arizona and California bagging peaks including Baboquivari Peak, Mount Ajo, and Picacho Peak.

Day 1 was Baboquivari Peak. We met at Babo Campground and climbed good trail to the base of the peak's western flank. Class 3 scrambling up a ramp on the west side led us to the bolted low 5th class segment. The climbing was easy here; once up the 5th a short walk up to the peak.
