The Sawed Off Heads Variation of The Awakening Wall splits from AW on pitch two, rejoining after two independent pitches. The two SOH corner pitches are long and strong!

Pitch 1-(5.8 DFU) Starting at the toe of the Great Awakening Wall, climb up and just right on very easy ground. The rock is not of terrible nature, but offers very little worthwhile gear for a ways. No bolts. Make your way into a small weakness system, find gear, and cruise to the grassy ledge.
Pitch 2-(5.7R) Climb up the small blocky ramp to the right and gain the upper ledge system. Follow it all the way right into the base of the mega left facing corner.
Pitch 3-(5.10) Can you say GLORY! Long pitch up the corner.
Pitch 4 -(5.10) Keep on it! Up the corner, through the easy roof.

At this point, continue up the Awakening Wall for five more pitches to the top!
