Sleeping Princess is the right-hand crack at the two cracks at the bottom of the bluffs! It is a nice solid granite crack and is easy to protect, the crux is at the last 10ft of the climb where the dihedral peeters out. This is a good warm-up climb and is much easier than the Left-Crack.


The main trail in the directions to the bluffs will take you to the bottom of the two cracks, there is a short fixed rope to reach the bottom of the climbs.
To hike to the TR anchors take the trail to the left of the cracks. When the hill becomes less steep head directly to your right on the path until you reach the tree with a fixed rope attached to it. Descend the rope to reach the chain.


Cams in the thin hand to wide hand range...
