Cougar Cliffs are located in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, and managed by Snow Canyon S.P. Details

Description

This is a short bolted route that climbs a steep varnished face on big horizontal holds. Steep and jugular with good flow.

Location

Enter from the parking lot, walk west barely to the rim of Paradise Canyon, turn left and head south weaving your way into some moderate size domes. The route is on the back side of the second tallest dome.

Protection

Four bolts to a two bolt anchor.

An easy fun route for beginners. I have a hard time believing this is a 5.9+. My 12-year-old brother-in-law climbed it with normal tennis shoes without too many issues. Tons of places for both hands and feet, put your hand or foot on the wall halfway to the first bolt and there will be something for you to grab. Aug 24, 2017
