The Perimeter is a cluster of boulders sitting on a sandstone shelf. It has gone uncharted for many years. This is probably because of complications by the coal mine located below it. The coal mine has since closed.

The crag has seen unreported waves of development over the years. Aside from this website, no one has made any details public. There are many fine looking lines not listed here. Some of them have been climbed and some seem unclimbed. At this point, who knows what has already been sent.

The crag itself is on public land, however the easiest approach to it uses a reclamation road owned by the coal mine. The road ends and a trail that continues across the mountain side passing "The Perimeter". At this point, you are on public land.

Getting There 

Park 2.8 miles from the Cottonwood Canyon road fork. Hike up a mine reclamation road that points down canyon. It passes a sign that says "The perimeter". Continue upward until you can see the boulder cluster along the mountain side. It is also possible to access the crag by hiking straight up the steep mountain side from Jared's Boulder. This route would is free of any access issues.
