Description 

The Main Amphitheater contains the most classic routes at Cougar. While most the sport routes are 10a or harder, the trad and mixed routes offer some easier climbing.

Getting There 

Follow the approach trail to the climber's left of the crag. The trail will take you above the lower cliffs to the base of the wall.
