Getting There

To locate Hidden Tower, drive to the Real Hidden Valley parking lot and hike out on the Hidden Valley nature trail (heading north). At the fork in the trail, take the path to the right and hike about 300 yards to a cleft break along the narrow path corridor. Locate a faint "climbers trail" heading east (next to a tall pinnacle...this is Hidden Tower) and scramble around to its northeastern side. Sail Away is the crack on the right mst part of the formation.

The Route

One Of Many JTree GemsDave Daly on 'Sail Away'
Making The Finishing MovesThe final moves on 'Sail Away'
Take the obvious crack to the top, climbing loads of hand jams and a few finger locks on some steep fun terrain. The route finishes to the left by stemming out to the bomber holds and climbing to the summit. There are four bolts on top to rap off from. Three of them have chains and rap rings. There is one seperate bolt with a single chain as well.

The Gear

- 60 meter rope
- 6 to 8 draws
- small to medium nut....this route loves 'em!
- A few cams (3/8" Alien to 2")
