Tower 3 is the higher or most westward tower before approaching Main Hellgate. As with the entire area, some people are put off by the chauky limestone that prevails. For others, a Hellgate love affair begins with the first visit.
Tower 3 is the higher tower and squeezed between Tower 2 and Main Hellgate. It is another 2-3 minutes approach time from Tower 2. It is strongly recommended to adhere to the trails that have been built or formed naturally from climber traffic.
The climber used to climb here in the 90's and either know everyone else up there or always had it to themselves. These areas have become much more popular...and in a way, a bit more dangerous. Always wear your helmet....even walking around at the base of these cliffs. Become cognizant of what and who is above you.

A thrilling jaunt up Tower Three, Heroes are Zeros is mentally taxing line and an adventure of epic proportions! While route finding here isn't the crux, there is a fair bit of wandering and a brutal sequence that requires the right path.Start the route up a shallow channel of choss and climb to a high fi...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
