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

Description 

An awkward start leads to some friendlier climbing above. Petting the Pussycat follows the only crack of the tallest wall passing a good selection of bolts. The route climbs through jugs, cracks, and edges to a two bolt anchor. Rap the line here or continue past a few more bolts to another two bolt anchor and walk off or rap.


Location 

This line sits in the middle of the tallest, most prominent south/west face on the cliff's floor. The start of this route is currently marked with a sand filled shopping cart. Thats right, i said shopping cart-sounds classic doesn't it! Don't be deterred.


Protection 

8 to 11 bolts (depending on where you stop), There are (2) two bolt anchors.

I thought this was pretty dang fun. The rock was better and more solid than some of the other lines at this chossy crag and the handcrack had some pretty fun jams. I love it when you can use a lot of different techniques on a climb.
