Pegasus is a great lead, w/great gear. If you lieback where the climber is in this pic, the route is 5.8++
As oppesed to climbing the face on the right, 5.8 (easier)

This might be the best 5.8 in the state. Excellent gear, exposure, some face climbing an committing moves. Highly recommended.

Even though the description says up to #2, I think I placed a #3 somewhere.

Wish I had the balls to lead straight up and avoid the holds on the right during the crux...

If leading, it's best to belay on the ledge just above the roof. That way you can see and (sometimes) hear your second.

Fantastic climbing, and an excellent lead for aspiring 5.8 climbers. Forget the face -- climb the corner!

Belay or top-rope off the giant boulder on top -- I used a 30' sling.
