Sleeping Beauty is the steep, pocketed route just left of the obvious black streak in the Sleeping Beauty area. Scramble up the right side of the low angle ramp on unprotected but easy terrain to the first bolt. Clip it and then head up and slightly right up the overhanging face on pockets. Choosing the right pockets out of the multitude of chalked holds will be the deciding factor on whether you get the red point or not.
5 bolts to 2-bolt anchor/rap

Great climbing up a smooth bulge festooned with pockets...some are good and some are not! Choosing the right pockets or having the endurance to hang out and search is the key to this climb.

It's a sweet little climb, but just too short for 3 stars.

Some of my friends and I have a saying for climbing at The Tower "Skip the crap, go big!". Meaning, make bigger moves from good holds to the next good holds and skipping the not so good. This certainly applies to this route and is a good rule of thumb to keep in mind for the whole area.
