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

Description

You might find yourself catatonic after pulling the opening moves of this short thriller. This route hosts a sequential set of technical and tense movement using edges and smooth, rounded features. Clipping the bolts takes a little extra work.

Location

Catatonic climbs the shortest route on the far left side of the tallest, most prominent, south/west face of the cliff's floor. This is the second route left of Petting The Pussycat.

Protection

6 bolts to a sling anchor.

This climb is surprisingly fun. The opening moves are tricky and the first bolt is pretty low. A stick clip to the second bolt might be a good idea unless you're confident at the grade. There are a couple of reachy moves, and an especially high left hand off a juggy side pull before the last bolt, that might make this hard for shorter folks. Jan 4, 2016
