Description

The Faulty Towers area has some of the best rock quality in the area. There is a wide range of climbing here from moderate trad lines to hard sport climbs. It gets morning sunshine, but provides ample shade on the northern sides and is a wonderful warm-weather area. There are four general area at Faulty Towers: Alien Wall, Glade Wall, Lower Wall, and The Towers. Glade Wall is a magical perched area that was the first area developed here.

Getting There

See Overview maps for location relative to other areas. The parking for Faulty Towers is the same as for Godhead South and is in a small clearing to the west of the road just before the obnoxious “Dead End” sign that is painted on a road side boulder. This sign refers to the major rock step in the road that is the main 4WD obstacle on this road when making the passage south from The Refuge to the road connection to Power Line Road to the east and 177 to the west. It’s actually not a dead end and is both a fun 4WD adventure and a great hike to head south on this road. There is a single trail to access Faulty Towers from this parking area, and it is marked by a cairn just on the other side of the dry creek bed. The trail brings you to the area from the north.

Trail cleaned up, hopefully obvious. Takes off from the west side of the "parking" or "pullout" area just before the rock with the "Dead End" painted on it. Been back here a few times now and it's a great place for the morning through early afternoon. 5 days ago
