Are you Rock Crawling? Really?

I just thought a spot to put some serious rock crawling pictures would be nice.

Not mine, but one on Upper Heldorado in BFE, Utah. I mostly watch...

Arizona has a wealth of beautiful trails. Perhaps more than any other state. I have run about half of them. Many extremely technical challenges to be found. The range of complexity is as varied as Moab. Just a different kind of rock. There is a huge rock crawling following here.

I can only assume this guy was already up top, backed up until his back tires dropped over, had a pic taken, then pulled forward so it looks in the picture like he crawled up it. I'm just kidding. That's insane, it looks verticle !!!!!!!!!! I was just sidelined by a basketball sized rock damaging my brake line, now I feel like a wimp.

These are not quite as crazy as some posted here, but we love to get out to Moab and the Mountains.

Here is a link to Black Bear Pass from the view of the wheel of the Jeep.

Here is a gnarly rock climb on the Steel Bender Trail in Moab

We have so many awesome places to play Jeep here! I will try to get up some pictures.

Periodically out of state WF folks come here to play and are amazed. I have run with WF folks from other states visiting here a number of times. If any of you come visit to play, reach out to one of us locals and we will be more than happy to take you out on the trail!

Jackhandle in Florence. Wish I had more pictures of this obstacle. It is called "The Jack*** Bypass" lol. If you saw the big Jeep eating crevice at the beginning of the obstacle, you would know why. (The alternate line is just a big dirt hill.)

Not quite as extreme as some of the above but still a good pucker factor when you are still making car payments....

Good stuff! Probably more like what us "normal" Jeepers like to do... Still fun, but maybe not body damage fun like some of these nuts here in AZ like to do.

Nah, it only gets to 110 four or five weeks a year. It's really not that bad. It is a dry heat after all.

When getting out of a pool feels great and not like you'll never dry off!
