Description 

Sideshow is a moderate 2-pitch climb on the far left (south) side of The Furnace. The first pitch climbs the line of bolts straight up and then slightly right. There is a distinct crux near the top of the pitch but is fairly straight forward. The second pitch follows the line of bolts up and to the left traversing over a dramatic roof. Though the climbing is by far easier on this pitch the exposure is quite an exciting element. This pitch climbs directly over "Every Man's An Island" 6b+.

Location 

Far left side of The Furnace... first route you see along the approach trail.

Protection 

1st Pitch: 8 bolts, 1 thread, 2BA. 2nd Pitch: 5 bolts, 2BA.
