The Lost Highway area is on the far right side of Sleeping Beauty. It is isolated from the rest of the rock and has a more remote feel.
Approach: See Mystic Mile for how to get to Ledge 2. Walk right on Ledge 2 past Mystic Mile. Rack up and leave your packs at either the second-to-last large tree (Eight Miles High) or at the last large tree (Arcanum). You will be rappelling down right of Arcanum. Walk further right to where the ledge ends, then scramble about 20 feet to the top of a pillar. The rappel bolts are just right of the pillar on a small ledge. A single-rope rappel brings you to a nice large grassy ledge with trees. You could, if necessary, rap from trees from here to the approach trail. The climbs begin near the right edge of the ledge.

Lost Highway is unusual in that you rappel in. It feels isolated on the right side of the crag, away from all the other climbs. I give this 1.5 stars. The rock is ugly in places, although solid, and the middle pitch is easy. Bonus points for the adventure factor.Approach: See Mystic Mile for how to get to Ledge 2.
