Enter red canyon as far as vehicles are permitted. The canyon splits into two main canyons, one going east (right) and one going north (left). Take the left canyon, the tower should be visible up and right. Hike the canyon through some narrows, you will not be able to see the tower or scramble out of the narrows until you have passed it. At this point scramble out of the narrows and up to the tower.
