Petting the Pussycat- 90’- 5.10b/
(photos) Petting the pussycat at Cougar Cliffs, get it? The longest route at 90’, this is one of the more enjoyable routes for the grade near Saint George. Both of us were pumped from other routes, but neither I nor another partner, who is a strong 5.11 leader, could lead this route clean the first time. So consider it a tough 5.10b. You might want to get on it early during your outing, it is pumpy. Pussycat is a very sustained, but well protected, route. Positive holds galore, but the moves are just slightly overhanging most of the way. Overhanging start up a crack that could be protected for this climb in my opinion, but has obviously been bolted. After a move right, fun move back into the crack with your left leg to get this route started. Eight bolts take you to chains (80’), but you can continue another 10’ to the top of the cliff and another anchor.
