Description 

A 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 There 

There 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.

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. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
