The scattered routes of the Perp Area are of substantially lower quality than those of the neighboring Broken Arrows, but this area does offer some worthy lines. The Perp Area is the collection of routes right (S) of the Right Arrow, including those on the short buttress just right of the Right Arrow, those beginning from the sloping ledge just above this buttress, and the routes many yards to the right, including Puddy Girl and Dough Boy.

Getting There 

Once across the river, head right (S) for a few yards through the weeds.
