Description 

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.

Rogue Planet is a visually striking, direct shot up the NW buttress of Aegir.

EFR checked out this system years ago, and eventually came down, as he wasn’t looking to aid through anything. Geir and I launched up the first pitch in early September, and placed 3 aid bolts on lead (later freed) through the 1st pitch crux.P1:...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
