Description 

Hidden Tower is the secretive formation northwest of Lady in the Bathtub. it's big, around 300 feet high and, like most of the Valley of the Gods towers, steep in every direction. In fact most facets overhang.

Getting There 

It's close to a two-mile (1.25-hour) hike from the road. Park just off the main road in a big wash (with blue-gray limestone slickrock) a half-mile north and east of the Lday in the Bathtub parking. Hike the wash northwest toward the tower. At the steep talus slopes the more westerly ridges are easier to ascend and dump you out at the southwest corner.

1. Scramble 10 feet up easy choss to a ledge, aid up a left-facing dihedral (maybe a fixed pin). Follow this 60 feet or so to a long roof. You are aiming for the beautiful, thin crack splitting the shield above. On FA, we avoided a loose-looking block atop the dihedral by a six-foot tension traverse right into a second crack system. This led directly through the long roof and into the splitter. Small Aliens and Slider nuts work well here. Continue more easily to a rotten ledge then up to a secon...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
