DescriptionJust north of the city of St. George, in the Red Cliffs Reserve lies the Cougar Cliffs. Within these bounds are a decent amount of mid-range sport climbs on soft and fragile sediment. The nature of this rock combined with moisture lends itself to be only climbable after a 24 hours dry period. This area is -the spot- for local "hard core" sport rappellers, tire tossers, glass breakers, and crushed beer can collectors. Climbing at the Cougar Cliffs is for climbers who like an adventure. if you're a fan of choss, Goss, and toss, this place is for you.
Cougar Cliffs are located in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, and managed by Snow Canyon S.P. Details
Restrictions on route development, off-trail access, and appropriate use are the same as are in the State Park. Pets on leash, don't smash the wildlife and flora, etc.
Getting ThereDrive 6 miles north past Sunset Bld. on route 18, after MM-6 look left for a pullout. Park here and cross a barbed wire fence to a clearing, Veer south (left) and head towards a dome shaped formation. From here head west to a three bolt anchor (rap) or continue south to a gully and walk down to the base.
