Access Issue: Closed for Raptors, Feb1-Aug1 Details

Description

Pegasus is a huge crag with only a few known routes on it. Traditionally the crag was pictured and labeled in the older books (Roach, Rossiter), but no routes were listed until the Haas book. The vague route listed therein represents a small fraction of the available climbing on the crag, including some recent additions.

This area is one of the more wild areas of the Flatirons and is a place to frequently see raptors, turkeys, bears, cougars and other less commonly seen wildlife. Tread lightly.

Getting There

Approach as per The Sphinx, and traverse slightly up and West to the South to reach the base of Pegasus above Medusa.

Likewise, one can start off bushwhacking uphill to the West from the junction of the upper Mesa Trail and the South Fork of the Shanahan Trail, approaching the base of Medusa and then up to Pegasus.

Either approach requires some off-trail hiking and takes about an hour.
