|Ah,yes, Peregrine. Many years ago one of my old climbing partners, being a poor student, decided to fashion his own "nuts and hexes" from water pipe fittings and wooden blocks. On one our trips to the Glass, we approached the Nose area and all the guide groups were hogging the first pitches of the Nose and Sundial. My partner was perrturbed, so he just roped up and started off on Peregrine. He led the first pitch and set the "belay". When I seconded my way to the ledge, lo and behold, the belay consisted of...PIPE FITTINGS!!! I angrily told him he'd better use cams at the next belay or I wouldn't climb a single pitch the rest of the trip.|

|Did this route with Steve Spanierman in around 1980, the FA info must have been incomplete.|

|FUn Fun Fun! A little more challenging then its brother and sister route, the nose and sundial. Big Step ups, eyebrows and slab! Often open on busy days but don't let that turn you off to this route, because its awesome in every way. If I remember correctly it can be a rope stretcher!|

Blowing the slabby slick reachy 5.9 could ruin your climbing season on P1. But you are going for a nice hold.
The eyebrows above are the best on the glass. Deep and regularly space.
Gumby trick: climb in the vicinity of Sundial P1 and clip a draw to it's anchor to bipass the One Move (broken ankle) Wonder on P1 of Peregrin. You still get the eyebrows above and it goes at 5.8 with no trip to the Transylvania County Veterinary Clinic for that ankle.
