Description:

The lower section is WI3 on the left, and WI4 on the right. The upper column is WI4. An alternate finish is to belay on bolts to the right of the base of the upper column, then head up a small ice column to the "rock finish", a dry tooling section up a short vertical wall (highly recommended). The right hand WI4 start, linked with the rock finish is an excellent combination.

5 out of 5 stars Pegasus

Pretty straight forward climb, lots of fun. Can tell why it is such a classic.

4 out of 5 stars notes on an ascent

dodged the train on the trestle. I am sure we went up the easiest way and didn't even look at the rock finish. wool surplus army pants, flexible leather boots, flexible salewa crampons, and 70cm axe. ice climbing in the bad old days.
