A wilderness route to a low pass through the Ajo Mountains. This route crosses the broad basin that separates Diaz Spire from the northern marches of the Ajo Mountains. Sweetwater Pass was once an important route for Tohono O’odham Indians, who used it to travel west into the Valley of the Ajo to gather the fruits of the organ pipe cactus. Long before their time, bands of Archaic people hunted and gathered in the basin to the west of the pass. Keep an eye out for signs of ancient Indian culture. Round mortar holes in the bedrock aided the grinding of seeds, and circular arrangements of boulders indicate sleeping areas. The route to Sweetwater Pass is strictly map-and-compass; there are no established paths.
