Does this count as rock crawling?

I've heard the term mall crawling here and since I'm a little scared to go offroading in my jeep I figured I'd ease into it at the local mall. Do I get any street cred for this? Uh... I mean trail cred?

Haha, you gotta start somewhere right? I was afraid too, no worries! My 1st flex was a standard curb.

Hahaha! ^agree, you gotta start somewhere and that is more than I have done. I'm still on the trails, aka side of the road. 😉

It's always a little scary the first time. There are rocks in that concrete, probably, so you're good to go

I'd say no, you still have at least 2 tires on the ground

Kinda funny. I'm two hours north of Vegas. And here is the BUT part. I don't get lost, Ever. I know where I'm going and I go. BUT, if the missus is being navigator I have gone the wrong way down one way streets. Usually under a casino in valet parking, with on coming traffic. And let me tell you, I can pop it in 4x4 and jump an 18" curb like you wouldn't believe. LOL

Although you had to crawl or at least creep up on the stanchion it is technically not a rock, not even a single one.
