His skill set was the biggest issue! He had already made it up the toughest part of the Golden Stairs. This is a good post Corbet because it shows a very common mistake, he was done and thought he was in the clear. He got aggressive in celebration and that's when things went south!
On the recovery. Another very easy to make mistake took place. The strap on the pulling winch needed to be attached to the passenger side and wrapped over the roof so when the winch was pulling it would roll the vehicle rather than slide it towards the winch.

They did a lot of things correctly! I was expecting the Xterra to take off in reverse when it landed on the wheels. That is sooooooo common and easy of a mistake to do....not making sure the vehicle is in gear or in Park.
