We just did this the "easy" way, by hiking around the Portal Trail past the tower and up over the rim, and then hiking back to access it from behind. After an exposed traverse over to the lower right side of the tower, you start up the obvious crack with a small bulge at the start. Then it's just an easy bolt ladder and some scrambling up to the top. I put "easy" in parentheses because the hike itself is the hard part. But the views, and getting on top of something I've been staring at for over 20 years made the hike worth it.
