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.

Poison Apple 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  New Mexico : Enchanted Tower : Sleeping Beauty Wall
Great overhanging pocket pulling! Start up a rock ramp, trending left to avoid the choss. Clip your first bolt just at the top of the ramp and the second one comes just there after. Technical crux was probably the first move after clipping the second bolt, it's just a matter of fighting through a pump factor after that. Just keep climbing, it gets easier near the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico
