Hobbit Couloir
Photo by Al Hospers
Directions:  Park at the Arethusla Falls parking lot. Walk North on the Railroad Tracks until you come to the trestle. Follow a trail to the left just before the trestle. Pegasus is the middle of 3 large flows, located between Chia, on the right, and Smear, on the left. Hobbit Couloir is the gully on the right with a runnel at the top.
Description: Climb the gully on the right side of Pegasus. Continue straight up the runnel to the trees at the top. Placing protection is strenuous but you can stem up the rock as you go.
Gear: Standard ice rack with some short screws and long slings.
Descent: Walk off to the right over top of Chia and back around to your packs.
History:  WInter 1979 - Bryan Becker- 1979.
