Tom Lane reaches the end of Side Show.

Description 

This variation adds enough spice and excitement to Gun Show's line to warrant its own listing.
Climb Gun Show to its penultimate hard move, then reach right to a good horizontal crack. Follow it on an odyssey leading to a tricky move rounding the outside corner 20' away. Well-protected, airy finish.

NOTE: This route lies directly in the bomb zone of ice falling from High & Dry. As such, early season ascents are not recommended. Wait for the ice above to completely fall off before climbing here.

Location 

Same as Gun Show: On the buttress at the right side of the Amphitheatre, at the vertical crack 20' right of Tribulations.
Descent options are the same as Gun Show.

Protection 

Small to medium cams, small to medium stoppers.

CONDITION REPORT 
Despite the contrived nature of this line, it is excellent. Somebody do this and let us know what you think of it!
