Description

Sun for most of day with late afternoon shade. Can be surprisingly hot on some days. Arguably the most secluded wall at Las Conchas because of the trees at the base and its position away from the trail. Nice place to escape when the jokers (I typed hikers but my iPhone auto-replaced it with jokers so I went with it) are walking around, asking too many questions, and starting to bum you out.

Rock is mostly great with some chossy bits, just like most stuff along the East Fork.

Getting There

Approach per the Leaning Tower and after crossing the last bridge (third river crossing bridge) by The Sponge keep going a couple minutes until you get to the first really good view of the Leaning Tower (near a small boulder right by the trail). Turn right in a small clearing and head uphill on a climber's trail through the oak bushes to the obvious wall and tower/buttress. This trail may need some love as it could be overgrown by now. Total hiking time from the trailhead to the Hidden Tower is 15 to 20 minutes on a flat, nice trail.
