If yu are in southern Arizona, and you enjoy rock climbing, surely you must be acquainted with Baboquivari Peak, southwest of Tucson.  To the Tohono O'otam (sp?) Babo is the center of the universe and I am inclined to agree with them.  All routes to the summit are technical and its majestic east face is the location of the first (perhaps only) grade six routes in Arizona.

I was introduced to technical climbing as a college sophomore many moons ago and learned a lot on its slopes.

To me Babo is just th first of many fabulous locales in southern Arizona.  There's Mt Wrightson (Baldy), Rincon Peak, Sabino Canyon  West Fork, the Chiricahuas, just to get started.  Don't forget Picacho Peak....
