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

I rarely give a route I am involved with 4 stars (seems a little egotistical) until more people have climbed it and there is a concensus. I make an exception here as this one I think deserves it. The bits of lichen in a few areas may take half a star off for some. Two options on the first pitch an 11- left facing corner to a right arching flake or an 11+ face and finger crack 15 ft. to the right.
