Steep red wall routes and some classic adventure climbs make this a must visit for the well rounded Tucson local and visitor alike.

Getting There 

Drop down the gully described in the "Getting There" for the Reef of Rocks. Take the big ledge that effectively splits the formations at the halfway point. Traverse around the corner doing a 3rd class section that will wake you up. After this you will see Aegir. Continue on the ledge to the bases of the routes.

Plenty of high quality, in-your-face climbing up great features.The start is fairly obvious: just left of Direct Madness, a large flake forms a fat crack with a dihedral above. EFR checked out this system years ago, and eventually came down, as he wasnÂ’t looking to aid through anything.
