  • 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).


    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.


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