Fawlty Towers takes new routes, exposing a dozen new obstacles through three common areas of Sand Mountain; Fault Line, Johnny’s Hot Tub and the West Rim Rock Garden areas. With steep climbs, descents, a handful of off-camber obstacles and even a few blind notches, experienced driving and a trusted spotter are a must to get through this exciting new trail!
While Fawlty Towers covers some of the known routes through Sand Mountain, most of it is on routes and obstacles not used before. Some of the obstacles are brand new ones. The scenery includes many varied slickrock formations, sand trails and overlooks of Warner Valley.
Fawlty Towers has a mixture of rugged rock surfaces, dirt hill climbs and descents, fast desert roads and slick rock ledges, notches, steep crawling climbs and descents.
The trail provides various waterfall options, then later takes a hard left turn into Gasoline Alley, a small canyon that takes you straight back to a hard right turn and up Nuttin but Sky crack. From there, make your way to the well known Wall of Doom. This optional obstacle is typically only tackled by buggies or long wheelbase vehicles with sticky tires. There is a 7-rated bypass to the left that is also optional. The next set of obstacles includes a huge ledge to the left that you’ll miss if you skip the small notch right off the road. Cross the road to Pitchfork. A descent that hooks around to a fork of a couple nasty buggy lines, and two 6/7-rated climbs. The waterfall in the middle is the normal route that will take some precise tire placement to keep all four wheels down.
The Rock Garden play area is the final destination of the trail. We will lead the pack through a series of unnamed notches, waterfalls steep climbs and drops through some out of this world rock formations, including Shoot for the Stars, a steep 7/8-rated notch.
35” tires and 2 lockers is a minimum requirement for this trail.
