Yes, I was cautious but not scared. The issue is that the bottom of the rock is all dug out sand and there is about an 18" straight vertical drop. When I started bouncing backwards, I was concerned that if I rolled back hard that it would be interesting if I hit hard at the bottom. I agree that in the vid, it looks like I should have just stood on the throttle and I would have gone right up. But, it's damn steep.
