Rimrock 4×4 Run
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On July 17, 2010 we met up on FS1202 and unloaded the trail rigs for the Rimrock 4×4 run.
We first hit trail 4W609. There was a lot of by-passes, unmarked trails and deep ruts.
The dry flat part of the trail were a challenge to get through with my aired down 33s. I had to stay out of the ruts since I was dragging diffs.

We came up on a nice hill climb. The Tweety Jeep walked up with ease.

I was parking when Havo came up. Next was Waycrazy.

On up the trail we found a tree down across the trail so Havo cut it and we moved it.

Some how we came down 4W608. We turned off and took 4W610 to FS1202. At this point Sparky74CJ and Waycrazy headed back to their tow rigs.

We headed up to FS1201 then ran the upper part of 4W608.

At this point and had a choice of running off camber or up this deep rutted chute.
Since my 33s were not tall enough, I took the off camber trail around. Havo and Dirty drove up the chute.

Here comes my Co-pilot. He was out taking pics.

At the top of 4W608 at 4W613 we found someone left a campfire hot in the trail and there trash.
We had to pull out the trash to let it cool before picking it up.

I took some pics as the trash cooled down.

After we got the trash picked up and campfire out, we moved back down 4W608.

There is one spot on the trail that has a tree of many colors.
My back tire came off the ground and I use the rain gutter to stop the XJ from flopping.
Havo was telling me to turn and he didn’t see a big rock he drove onto causing him to flop over.
