Small crags mainly Top-Roping (some Bouldering) up near the top of the cliff just east of the Tower Wall. Their base areas typically have steeper drop-offs below, so they're "perched".

The sectors of the Perched Ramparts are (west to east, L to R) . . .

Getting There 

These crags are between the upper Tower Wall and the Puzzle Palace Wall.

Because of difficult vegetation as of 2016, the easiest approach is to first go to the base of the Puzzle Palace crag, then walk about left horizontally WSW under steep left-trending gully then under the crag sectors in R to L sequence.

How to get to Puzzle Palace: See detailed instructions in the first Comment on the Puzzle Palace area page.
