Description 

A great easy climb with 2 distinctly different halves. To get maximum value out of this short route try to avoid using the broken pillar just a few feet to the right. Start up the wickedly sharp, black slab just right of Don't be Messin' with Ma Moves. With blinders on, slab up on a mixture of jugs and pockets with a few, thin, balance moves tossed in. Then, suddenly the rock gets pretty good and steepens to a really fun roof with hand-jugs and feet so perfectly placed you'd think you were in a gym! If not for the sharp start and the shortness of this route, I'd have called this 3 stars, but still a must do at this grade.
