If you want additional fun, just go past the pancake rock and go to the left, there is a rock garden you can play on. To my knowledge there is nothing to the right other then a lock gate.

As far as what rig is required to make it up to Pancake Rock, Ive done it several times in the past year and all I have is slightly larger tires then stock with no lift. The nice thing about pancake rock is typically you have more then one route to take, so if your a good driver or have mods done you can take a harder approach or if your stock and don't want to bother, you can probably drive around it. P.S. Dress warm, it was extremely cold last weekend on top.
All I have is a 1" lift, no track bars, disconnected swaybar, and 235/75 tires to roll on. Sounds like it's about as easy as some of the trails around here though.

Maybe when you guys get another trip sometime I'll have to take a day off to play.


All about that unibody life.

Yup, good day. No one broke anything or got stuck and I got home just ahead of the rain.

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

WAY OFF. I did LW 2wks ago and other than ONE obstacle near the water tower it was easy.PR was a LOT of fun. Many more lines to play with, there's the rock garden as well. Not sure if you went before or after the rains but there were quite a few ruts today. Short but satisfying.


And yes it was chilly. We got out by 130 or so. Just in time before the rain.

Yea, It started to sprinkle as I got off my exit on the 125.
I had an amazing time, with great jeeps and even better people!! Thanks for all the help and waiting for me when I fell behind. Always a good wheeling day when you can drive in and then cruise the way home safely.
Here are my pictures, they are out of order - stupid photobucket lol - and some are phone pics and some are SLR's.
If anyone has a problem with this many pics on this thread, by all means, let me know and I can create another thread or just delete them and keep the link. It's just sometimes people don't even bring themselves to click on a link, they like to see the pics right then and there lol

































There are a few more pics, but kinda repeats though; here is the link to the album if you want the high def version of them.

The rock rolled behind the jeep and was blocking.


There's kind of a previous history of this sort of landscaping

Just an FYI if you are headed out to the desert, there is no fuel on ocotillo. Seeley has the nearest gas.

No word on when they will get it back, but texaco will not sell gas to the station out there because he has not properly maintained the station, and OTU fuel needs some sort of repair done to his system which he cannot afford yet.
