Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A good route with a tricky crux at mid-pitch. If you guess correctly on the way to go, it will feel 10b, but it might feel harder if not. The route is quite good and I won't spoil it by saying any more.
One can continue up on the second pitch of 'Side Show' (5.easy, more bolts) if desired.

Location 

This route is the first route from the left that starts at ground level on the South face of the furnace wall. Climb up past maybe 5 bolts and figure out the sequence for an interesting and thin crux, then ride up easier terrain to a 2-bolt anchor and clip and lower off.

Protection 

10 bolts, a thread, and a bolt and chain anchor.
