BETA PHOTO: Lowering from GS-3 (5.8)

Warning: possible ongoing rockfall after major rockfall event. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

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.

Location 

From the trail head left passing many other routes until you reach a bunch of logs. The route is the first one to the right of the logs (if you continue left you'd get to couple more 5.8s).

Protection 

6 bolts

Agree with the suggestion to have the second clean on the way up and then rap down from the anchor bolts.
