The correct line in that spot is actually several feet farther over to the drivers side. By getting further over you miss that big hole that the passenger rear drops into which causes the roll.
So knowing the obstacle, the long and short wheelbase lines, etc helps a lot.
Randy speaks word of great wit! Another problem that is very common on the trail is spotter macho-ism. If a guy spotting only has experience in short wheel base or long wheelbase vehicles he must yield to someone with more experience for the vehicle that's doing the obstacle! It's a tough thing to do.
