Jean Aschenbrenner working the crux at the second ...

Description 

Gotham City starts 10 feet left of Awakenings, 40 feet left of Time Square, at a crack in the center of a black slab. Climb the slab past two bolts (crux), then work up and left on easier ground to a steeper headwall. Climb the headwall past three more bolts to the anchors.

One of the easier 10a routes in the area, with a brief crux. Another OK warm-up route.

Protection 

7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

I thought this was a really fun warm up. The crux is distinct and leads into casual, fun climbing.
