Gun Show is home to some of the newest routes at the Far Side and the popular slab route Endless Bliss. There are a number of enjoyable 5.10 routes on this crag which faces south and has good sun exposure.
On the main approach trail, pass the side trails to Overhaul and Gritscone, then take a right at a fork just past a sign warning of an underground cable. Look for a large fallen log on the right side of the trail, and a climbers trail leading downhill on the far side of it. This will take you to Gun Show.

After what feels like a crux (shortly after start and before the first bolt) it gets much easier (classic Far Side slab, more like 5.7), but still fun. Guide book recommends cleaning it on the way up and then rappelling to the base of GS-4 (because of the way it's angled). Since Gunshow is very noisy and you can't see the chains from below, make sure you agree on communication with your partner....[more] Browse More Classics in WA

The far right side routes are still accessible by descending the talus field from Eastern Block and cutting over. I only checked Welcome to the Jungle but I bet the other new routes are still okay.
