Description

Aegis Rock houses several very good sandstone problems that climb over great landings. There is a little of everything on this rock, the east-facing slab is fantastic, the overhanging west face is dirty but has potential, and the slightly overhung north arete is a must-see of the area's problems.

Despite the rock's excellent quality, the top layer is rotting. I trundled most of the loose stuff and found it to be very solid underneath, but there is still some remaining, just be mindful when topping out.

There is a small downclimb on the rock's south face.

Getting There

It can be found in the Southie Area. From the parking area, head to the main area that is home to Moby Dick, from there continue up hill and veer slightly south. It's roughly five minutes from the main boulders. Reference the page map for clarification.
