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.

Although the crux comes early and there's a decent rest after you've dispatched the first third, expect no mercy through the stacked boulder problems that guard the anchors.Start in a featureless shallow dihedral and make your...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
