Description 

This tower looks like a smaller version of Castleton. There are 3 obvious lines on the tower, (Fort Knox, South Face and West Face). Only Fort Knox is listed in a guide book. The South face has been climbed and the West face has an obvious line but it is unknown if it has been climbed. (The true name of the South Face route is unknown.)

Getting There 

To get to Gold Bar Tower follow the rim up canyon staying left and passing the Golden Nugget to the only obvious tower standing alone. Hike is 15-30 min.

From the second bolt hand traverse right 10' on manky rock to a mantel onto a small ledge.(5.7+) Climb the splitter hand crack that slowly widens to the top of the tower.
