Sleeping Beauty Wall

New Mexico > Enchanted Tower
Access Issue: Thompson Canyon Details

Description

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".

Getting There

You can hike up to the Sleeping Beauty Wall from either side via trails along the slopes below the wall.
