Peregrinus.

Description 

Start in the middle of the boulder on a block that protrudes out and gives a nice ledge to start on. Virtually no feet to start. Smear pretty much underneath the start hold and campus/make a huge deadpoint up to a leaning crimp. Find a way to get your feet up and drop into the next crimp (I wont spew beta as to how I did this move). Make another big move up to a sloper pocket and wrench your gut. Stay very tight... from here, the line connects with corner cafe and tops out. Pretty self-explanatory from here on.


Location 

Next to Corner Cafe, in the middle of the overhang.

Protection 

A couple of pads and a damn good spotter. I built a level landing to throw down some pads. But if you're up here without a good spotter and fall from the top, you're bound to end up taking the tumble of your life.

The top was a bit sketchy, even if I had a spotter. But usually when I am back home visiting, I end up bouldering by myself. So, I ended up stacking my smaller Mad Rock to level the ground under my huge MR. Once I stuck the end, I was in no way going to let go, then bounce and tumble:) Nice Line!

Tried a re-send today, as my first of the day. Got shut down going to the lip. A spotter would have egged me on. The tumble is to die for...and it's sandbagged.

Spent more than a few days sampling the bouldering in Unaweep and in Gand Junction. I've been blown away by some of the amazing secluded lines in Nine Mile and walked away impressed with the line quality of the Dynamite Shacks. With that, I have to say that Riggs' Hill was more than disappointing. The Peregrinus is a no star route, it's that simple. I too have an opportunistic bouldering zone in my hometown, so I understand.
