This has been on my bucket list for many years, but many things kept it out of my reach. However, when AZ climbing and outdoor legends Dave Baker and Gary Hervert agreed that they could get me there and down in one piece, I knew the moment had come.

Now that I'm once again safely on Tucson alluvium, I have to say that this was by far one of the most rewarding adventures of my hiking career. Now I know not only that I am capable of doing it, but that I'm capable of having fun doing it - and isn't that really more important?

I'll write up a very detailed trip report, but for reasons that would become obvious upon reading, I am not going to post it here on HAZ. I am more than happy to share with anyone who would like a private read, though - so just drop me a message and I'll send you a copy. I will post the photos, though, and the story they tell is more than enough to give you the idea of what a wonderful, epic and magical adventure Babo is.

Thank you, I'itoi for allowing me entry into your granite realm.
