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!)

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.
