Perla's Ridge Talus

Little Cottonwood Canyon

Perla's Ridge a.k.a The Knuckle of God

The rock quarry was riddled with loose boulders, one came loose while I was on it.
There is poison oak waiting if you decide to leave the trail.

To get there: cross the wooden bridge east of the pipe bridge,
(or cross the pipe bridge then go east until you get to the wooden bridge)
then continue east (not southeast) until you reach the mouth of the quarry.
Follow the quarry for as far as you want, this will eventually lead you over the mountain
and into Bell's canyon - if you can free climb over the short 5.6 sections of rock next to the drainage paths.


Along the path after the wooden bridge are quite a few large boulders to climb.

Looking toward Gate Buttress from the Perla's Ridge talus.

Some people say that "little people" live in the Perla's Ridge talus.
Don't believe them, they are actually big people - far away.

This is an up close shot of the drainage paths.
There are some pictures of this area from The Thumb
