The Microwave Area is made up of three short cliffs, offer routes from steep face climbing to crack. Routes range from easy to hard.
The quickest and easiest way to reach the Microwave Tower, head out towards Devil's Den. Pass the boulder field, following the cliff band to its northern most point, climbing steeply to the top of the Den. Keep following the trail thru a small sparsely wooded area before entering the woods again, at this point in time you'll be able to see the microwave reflector and part of the lower cliff area. Keep following the white blazed trail to the top of the hill.
