Description 

This is a reasonable climb and a reasonable warm-up. The rock is good, the gear is generally good, and the cruxes protect well if you look around for placements.

Climb up and into a crack system that aligns with and intersects the right-facing dihedral hanging high overhead on the East side of the Horse's Head.
The crux is high on the route exiting through a steep section.

Belay on a tree 4 meters back from the top with a long cord or your rope, then walk off to the West end of the crag and around back to the base on the South Face (10 minutes).

Location 

Saddle Up is a crack system that leads to the right-facing dihedral high on the right (East) side of the Horse's Head, a jutting overhang 3/4 of the way up the South Face of Pegasus.

Protection 

A single set of cams to 3" + nuts. Belay off of a tree back 4 meters from the top edge with a long cord.
