Getting There 

Park at Midgley's Bridge and follow the Wilson canyon trail to its terminus. Continue up the drainage for a couple minutes to a fork. Take the left fork, which contains a few downed trees and bushes, after 30 yards the bushwacking subsides and you enter a slick rock section, continue past another fork staying right. At the next fork go left, up a downed tree. Follow this tunneling through some massive boulders to a final fork. Go left and immediately head up a loose slope to your right and a game trail, after a minute gain the ridge to your left at a boulder. Continue up ridge to a large flat boulder, head left across a drainage to the tower.
