Moving into the crux section on Microwave

Description 

Climb up and over a bulge to good pockets and a ledge. From the ledge, balance past two bolts with a technical sequence that stays on you till the anchors are clipped. Short, but packed with hard and thought-provoking moves.

Location 

Right end of The Oven, around the corner from the big Terminal Vector roof. Starts to the right of the old pine tree.

Protection 

3 bolts to chains shared with Body Language.

Short but technical moves on this one. The grade seems solid as it's more on your feet climbing than brawn.

The boulder problem crux of this route, near the top, has one of the smallest holds you've ever seen on a 5.11. Good rock and movement, but short and not too sustained.

Very unique crux sequence. Blank and all balance. Pretty much no power on this one. Very cool for only 3 bolts.
