Description 

90' tall tower of good quality rock across from Hidden Valley wall. From the maps available, the tower appears to be on public land, but there is a house down hill so keep a low profile.

This area should be in the main granite canyon area if anyone knows how to move it.

Getting There 

Park at the pull out below Hidden Valley Wall. On the other side of the road look for a gap in the fences and an old fire break that goes straight up the hill. This is where a corner of BLM land meets the road. Go up the old break until almost to the cliff and head right at a cairn. Traverse across to the tower which is now visible. There are several nice moderate cracks on the wall you traverse below that have an anchor above them (FA: BW and SM).
