Description 

The lowest and tallest cliff at the Microwave area.

Getting There 

The quickest and easiest way to the Lower Microwave Area is to walk past the reflector (south) towards the top of the left side of the Middle Microwave Area. Turn left and follow a small ramp down to a large flat area and the Middle Microwave wall, face the same way you came down, work your way down another ramp, follow the cliff band to its end. Look down hill, with your back to the cliff, and you'll find a faint climbers trail. Follow this trail down and to the left, you'll pass an alcove with several cracks in it. Proceed past these and down hill.
