DescriptionA small litle tower with a good warm up for some of the harder climbs in the immediate area. It is shady until a little after noon, and then receives sun for only a couple of hours before going into shade again.
Getting ThereThere are two common ways to approach this cliff.
One: Park above New Wave Wall, last pullout on the left (going up the mountain). Rappel off of one of the guard rails down into the gully, walk to the end of New Wave and continue down the gully. Down and slightly right you will see the one climb that faces the road on the wall, "Microwave". The gully is very loose so be very careful.
Two: Park at the same place, walk up the road and approach as if going to Hunchback (Steve's Arete), contour along Wind Wall and drop down the same gully mentioned above just past The Stovepipe.
