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.

It looked pretty easy from the ground, so i decided it would be a good opportunity to go ground up on something. After a bit of inspection i decided to trundle p1 on rap. Turned out to be a good idea as i pulled off many body sized blocks. The rock underneath however was bomber and gear options plenty. The pitches are unfortunately fairly short, but we decided to pitch it out for rope drag and communication. It might make sense to link either 1 and 2 or 2 and 3 for future ascents.P1- Start on th...[more] Browse More Classics in Washington

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.
