Description 

Awakenings starts about 30' left of Time Square at the right side of a black slab. Clip two bolts on the slab, then work right into a short right-facing corner. Climb past a small roof at the top of the corner, and angle up left to the anchors. The sixth bolt is poorly positioned, too far left of the natural climbing line.

Knapp's guidebook calls this route 5.9+, but it felt more like 5.9 to me. Another OK warm-up route.


Protection 

7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Bring a longer runner for the sixth bolt.
