Description Suggest change

The Main Amphitheater contains the most classic routes at Cougar. While most the sport routes are 10a or harder, the trad and mixed routes offer some easier climbing.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow the approach trail to the climber's left of the crag. The trail will take you above the lower cliffs to the base of the wall.

Per Trevor H: the GPS location is 40.770955 N, 106.807554 W. The map function doesn't quite match Google maps and doesn't allow input of GPS coordinate but is close.
