Description 

A trad route for a decade, retrobolted by R. Bailey and E. Wright in 2006, I presume to make it more accessible. I do not understand the concept of renaming a route after retrobolting it, however... Perhaps it was unintentional?
Rack up with draws, or go re-retro with the rack and head up for ~100' of discontinuous cracks to the anchor, roughly following the bolt line for direction.
An OK route, but with little to distinguish it from the other 5.10- routes in the area.

Location 

Crescent Moon is a good way up Mota wall from the Western end base. Approach as for Snott Girlz and Poncho Villa Rides again, continuing on beyond those. You will pass little aluminum plaques at the bases of some routes before reaching this one. It is easy to see and read.
If in doubt, find climbers at the base of the ever-popular 'Two Pump Chump' and back off back down the hill 3 bolt lines to find this one.

Protection 

A standard light rack, or 9 bolts & anchors up top.
