Description

Cougar Narrows is a beautiful location with short, water-polished limestone walls on either side of a stream.

The stream runs roughly north-south through this area so shade will be available in early- to mid-morning and in the later part of the afternoon.

The rock here is different from any other climbing area in American Fork Canyon in that it is very smooth (glass-like in some spots), the pockets are mostly shallow, smooth affairs, and the friction is low.

Getting There

Take the trail along the stream (bed) in Tank Canyon for about 12 to 15 minutes from the road until you arrive at a narrow area with smooth, polished walls on either side of the stream.
