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.

I'm not sure if it is clear to everyone that the dome has a lower half with 4 routes and the upper half has most of the routes.
Also we did not know about the new approach down in-between the Aegir and the Neptunes upper halves. Look for the carins just before dropping down the north gully.
We were able to top rope all four routes on the lower Aegir from one anchor, two trees, using a few directionals.
I recommend the dirty crack start to Gom Gobber about 6 feet right of the bolt. Sep 26, 2018
