This 80' tower is identified by 2 prominent cracks on its northeast face. The right crack is Sail Away, one of the best routes in the Park for the grade. Just left is Wild Wind, another fun moderate with an exciting traverse. Three other routes are listed in Vogel's guidebook but rarely climbed.
Approach #1: From Real Hidden Valley parking lot, hike north along trail to "T", turn right, and follow Nature Loop trail past Sports Challenge Rock. Cut northeast and Hidden Tower will be on your right.
