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. May 9, 2011

Fun, short crux to laid back climbing above, assuming the bolts have been replaced (at least I didn't notice anything particularly concerning about them). First 10 onsight for me, but given the non-sustained nature, I'd put an asterisk next to that. Chuckle. Jun 19, 2015
Fun, thoughtful start, crux move just after second bolt with great left crimp to pull through. Nice moderate. I suggest completing facelift with a new anchor. Bolts. Jul 11, 2016
