Description 

Start this route on some blocks to the right of the crack system and traverse into the easy ground. Some loose rock in the upper part of the climb. Not as nice as Knight's Move or Ancient Way.

Location 

After passing Wiessner Slab, the trail works up past Vector and then turns a corner. This is Bushy Groove. Past this is another obvious crack system - Wishbone. Then look for the stacked blocks and obvious easier crack system that mark Main Street.

Protection 

Light traprock rack.

The clean, fun chimney at the top is your reward for an otherwise humdrum climb.

For flavor, add the harder (but very short), direct crack start on the left of the slab at the base. Crack + exposed juggy ladder + chimney = fun. As of 8/13, loose rock at the top was not a significant issue.
