Rockfax Description
The meat of this climb is crack-climbing and only the start of the route lives up to its name. Start 6m left of the base of Pegasus's corner.
1) 4c, 30m. Climb a faint crack-line rightwards to join a large corner at 10m. Ascend the steepening corner with difficulty to its top and move right to a large ledge and belay.
2) 4b, 20m. Climb easy-angled rock to a crack in the steep wall above a right to left-slanting break. Climb the crack and its continuation to a wide break from where a short awkward section of wide crack above accesses a good ledge and belay.
3) 8m. Climb the easy corner on the left to the top. © Rockfax

Stef started leading p1 but didn't fancy the crux, so backed off and I led it. Stef then ran 2 and 3 as one but went wrong near the top and ended up on the very top of Pegasus. Pitch 1 was excellent but pitches 2 and 3 are only ok (even if you go the right way!)

Nice route, Lead P2. Tom I think must have gone off course for P3 resulting in the hardest move of the route, up a lichenous slab!

The plan was to climb another line Eric wanted to lead. But he got massively splashed after abseiling in, so I took over the lead and started some 15 metres into p1. Led it in one single long pitch.

Hmmm, not sure about the route finding. Belayed on sloping ledge before the steepening in the corner, then climbed the corner. Went up and left through a green wall but no layback to be seen.

Led p1. Seagull-avoidance tactics led to effectively soloing sections of Pegasus and escaping ignominiously, followed by an abseil to re-climb part of the correct route and retrieve the gear... not sure I can really tick this.
