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


A supposed elimination of geezers....most "old hands" will still be able to fight the good fight!

A very desperate, thin, and steep start through a scoop follows a right leaning crack to some bigger holds and a nice rest. Steep, involved climbing finishes the route at a two bolt chain anchor. Nice and long, Geezer Holocaust is a the next best route to hop on after a few warm-ups.

Interpreted: Bare and almost footless climbing past three bolts leads to a slow and steady ease of thickening holds and a growing selection of stances. Thin crimps and sucker holds decorate the crux, while vanishing feet on a mild traverse weaken and crumble. If you can find a good sequence, heavy breathing and the chance of recovery come at the sixth bolt, rest up for the red point crux beneath the final headwall. Rough and Tough!! Come with an empty stomach.


Geezer Holocaust lies directly right of Petting the Pussycat on the wall's main west face.


Ten Draws and a 60 meter rope for eight bolts and a chain anchor.
