|Overview & Waterfall
The crux is a throw between the first and second bolt on a steep section, the route traverses left under the roof and out, up to ledge.
Awakening is the second route past the water fall when walking to Apple Cider area. Currently, there is a rock bench seat at the base of this climb. From the anchor of Awakening, there are two sport routes that are good second pitches, the one on the right is called Totally High Maintenance. Awakening could be linked to either of these pitches, but drag may be an issue.
10 bolts, 2 bolt anchor on ledge.

I think drag would definitely be an issue for linking.
Also, make sure your 2nd is solid at the grade as cleaning could present some issues.

We climbed this first pitch then went on to climb the second pitch of Totally High Maintenance. The crux is definitely right off the deck, I'd even put that one single move at 11+ or even 12a, but the rest of the route is probably 10+.
This route should be placed in the overview area, since there are routes in the overview area to the left AND right of this climb in that section.

Just did this today and found the crux at the first bolt to be at least 5.12a. Linked it in to THM and it was a great pitch with significant drag - but fun!
