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

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.
