Sleeping Beauty Wall Rock Climbing
Reaching for the pockets near the top of the route...
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.

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. ...[more] Browse More Classics in New Mexico
