This is a fun and short little climb that is a great warm up for New Wave climbs if you do it a few times. This climb has good movement. The only bad things is that the climb is fairly short and the start is very funky. I've seen several people do it different ways and they all look awkward.


This is the only route on Microwave Wall facing the road.


4 bolts to chain anchors.

I'm not sure this climb was 10 c/d. It's a short route, with really good holds on it. It's pretty fun, and that's all that matters. ( even if the start is goofy! ) Jul 4, 2006
If you cut right at the top after the last bolt and skip the good but harder stuff strait up it's 10b. Don't cheat yourself out of the crux at the top as it's fun and adds some spice to the finish. Jun 30, 2006

This is a short pumpy 5.10c/d. If you get on it thinking it's 10b you are in for a whippin'. If you climb 5.12 regularly you might call it 10b but it's not. Jun 26, 2006
