The top section is overhanging but with big holds.
Cougar Cliffs are located in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, and managed by Snow Canyon S.P. MORE INFO >>>


The climb starts off on 5.10'ish terrain navigating a shallow roof, enters a crimpy and smooth face section (the crux), and finishes after a brawny and overhanging top section with big holds.

The route can be done as either 1 or 2 pitches. If done in one pitch a 70 m rope is required if the leader is going to be lowered to the ground.


This is one of two excellent sport routes on the imposing cliff face right below the rapellers favorite anchoring spot (this would be the cliff face closest to the parking area along Hwy 18). From the parking area walk towards the right where there is a faint trail and a class 4 scramble to the bottom of the routes.


Just bring your quickdraws (many of them).
