Before, I start rambling, I want to say that this is one of the funnest routes I've climbed in Oregon. Very good rock, longish (ten pitches), and little objective hazard. Its not overly difficult but it makes up for it in exposure.
Now I'll start rambling. This is day two of our Southern Oregon trip. From the campground, the Peregrine Traverse was only about 20 miles as the crow flew. Figuring we were half an hour from our objective we woke up at a casual pace, had a sit down breakfast and then we started getting our day planned. We broke out the map and learned that we'd have a two hour drive! The only access road was around the mountain, along the river and through Tiller. We stopped for gas and I decided it was time to shed my pants and go to shorts. I looked over and the gas girl was watching me. I let her know I had shorts under my pants so don't be alarmed. She responded "Honey, I live in Tiller, nothing scares me." Let the adventure begin.
Arriving way too late (I know, I know) we finally found ourselves at the toe of the Peregrine. The route is ten or eleven pitches w/ several variations. Depending on your comfort level you can just take quick draws and clip the available bolts but most people will want a set of cams and a set of nets w/ some extra long runners. Some people solo the whole thing. I brought four nuts and three cams. That ended up being about perfect. Amy is still getting the hang of run out trad climbing so I wanted to give her some gear to practice with.
We climbed in pairs, Amy and I; Matt and John. Both very cute couples. After their cuddle fest in the tent, I noticed a closeness in them;-) Amy lead the first pitch and didn't place a single peice of gear by the time she found the anchors. She's been hanging out w/ me too long. The above pic is the top of the second pitch. Amy set out to lead the 3rd pitch as she lead the odd numbered pitches. Matt joined me at the belay as he was leading even numbered pitches. When he arrived at the belay, he looked a bit shook up. It had been awhile since he's climbed and the exposure caugh him off guard. I just tried to give him room to puke.
