Drew Ruana reports on Insta that he has done the FA of Pegasus 8C in Joes Valley in Utah. After he sends the 4th ascent of “Sleepwalker” (8C+), currently the most difficult boulder in the USA, it was a first ascent this time. Drew’s first new creation in this grade is located in Joe’s Valley, Utah. It was Drews’ fourth grade 8C boulder and harder.
“This boulder in total is around 13 moves, definitely more on the power endurance side. Feels on par, if not harder than some of the 8Cs I’ve done.”

Happy to have FAd another hard bloc on a little recon mission to Joes Valley with @mcqueen_sam and @brennannnnn yesterday! I put 7 sessions into this before the snow season hit but thankfully with some good conditions I was able to nail all the moves. 5 extremely hard tension moves of around v13 climbing lead directly into the start of Pagan Poetry low, v12+. This boulder in total is around 13 moves, definitely more on the power endurance side. Feels on par, if not harder than some of the 8Cs I’ve done. Feeling ready for a few weeks in Bishop! • Pegasus, 8C/V15 FA. Full Uncut coming tomorrow • @arcteryx @trangoclimbing @tenayaclimbing @tensionclimbing @physivantage 📸 @brennannnnn
