Looks like it's taken from the south side.

You don't have to climb to the top. I did and it had some scary but interesting sections. It has some 'reverse' climbs and some cables to negotiate. But if you've been up Angels Landing you should have no worries with the height. The views/photos from the top will need a good tele lens to get the best shots. But 'pollution' can be an issue.

There are trails around the base of the peak. Lots of interesting stuff to photograph.

The USAF often use the peak as a pylon for local training! At dusk we often observed fighters doing 'U turns' at the peak!

Just a note of caution. The peak is in a state park. Rangers told us about all the rescues they perform. It's not a climb to be taken too lightly.


Thanks, I'll keep that in mind as I don't know a lot about AZ mountains other than I've heard not to underestimate Baboquivari Peak either.
