Sleeping Beauty Wall is found just up and left of the Enchanted Tower in a sort of squared-out rectangular alcove. The middle section of the wall is overhanging. A pretty good range of routes are located here, from 5.9 to hard 5.11 and from complete jugs like those on Cheshire Cat to tiny crimps on Glass Coffin and Poison Apple. This seems to be a pretty popular area, so likely that you'll have company during the "season".
You can hike up to the Sleeping Beauty Wall from either side via trails along the slopes below the wall.

It's named after a puppy, and for a formation of huecos near the bottom of the route that resemble a paw print.Clip the first bolt fairly high on the route. The rubble at the bottom of the route as you head toward the first clip gives one reason to think (be careful!).
