An alternative to Snoozin' Suzie, although harder. Start at a small right-facing corner to the right of the through cave.
1) 4a, 33m. Climb the tricky groove and step left to the arete. Climb the arete to a ledge and then the crack above to a possible belay. Step left to the arete and follow it to the top.

UKC Logbook Description
Sleeping Sarah, 33m, Severe, **
Start at the extreme right end of the cave, at the overhanging groove and one metre to the left of the now crumbling Snoozin Suzie start (pictured in the guide). Climb the groove (crux) then step left onto the arete. Climb the arete to the ledge (good belay possible) and then the obvious crack to another possible belay. Step left to the arete and follow it to the top, finishing at the three trunked tree.
Great climbing and gear throughout, only spoiled by a little loose rock at the top. Every bit as good as its neighbour and a nice alternative if its busy, being only slightly higher in the grade.
The name is for my wife Sarah, who after joining me on many new routes over the years, passed away in unexpected circumstances in October 2019.
