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

Description

It has three stars in the guidebook, so it must be great and when you're at the base looking up you see that it's invitingly steep with lots of features—perfect!

Then you get on it and quickly realize you've been sandbagged and that it's loose, steep but with chossy jugs and a hard-for-the-grade crux down low. Only worth doing for the full Cougar Cliffs experience. One generous star for the novelty of it all.

Location

Far right side of the West Face and the next route right of Going for the Throat (5.11a).

Protection

7 bolts, anchors
