The north facing "towers" that appear to be leaning to the right when viewed from the road and thus gave rise to the name of this area: i.e. "faulty" towers, which also happens to be the name of a tv show. The best rock quality of this area.

Getting There 

Standard approach and then head up and right to the base of the towers.

Right tower, delicate face climbing requiring a tricky sequence to get through the sustained lower crux. Difficult on-sight, rewarded by superb rock quality and one of the most fun sequences in LD.

Runout between the upper bolts. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

Went back in to get on Fault and Double Fault last weekend and was stymied by the swarming bees that have quite a hive going in the big wide chimney/crack to the right of Double Fault. They've been around in the past, but it seems like they're in major activity mode now. Decided to play it safe and not climb around there. A heads up to anyone going in to Double Fault.
