Bolt line in the Middle of the Microwave Slab.

Climb the lower slab, under the first bolt, on good holds to the first horizontal break, place gear or just clip the 1st bolt and mantle up on to the slab and follow thin flakes and edges to the 2nd bolt and 2nd horizontal break. Mantle on to second ledge and proceeded thru the upper half of the route.

The upper portion of this route tends to seep long after it rains, around bolt 3 to the top.


Lower Microwave Wall, all the way to the end of the wall you'll find a large arch next to a steep slab face.


4 bolts and gear
