Clay working on a new Aegir route

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.

You may want to clip off you sorcerers staff at a decent rest, because its on all the way to the chains from here! Big whips possible and likely. Do n...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
