Here's one way, go left! Cliffhanger

Yeah I broke at the part you passed within the first 0.5 seconds of that video. If I'd a made it past that I probably would have been okay

I don't think you'd get much agreement on that assessment. Was Porcupine the first trail you'd ever run in Moab? You always remember that first trail being harder than it actually is. I bet if you ran it again, you'd do it with far less pucker.

You also remember the trails when you "step up" to another level. I didn't find Moab Rim to be as hard as its reputation, but Behind The Rocks gave me some serious puckerage indeed!

At first I didn't think so, but now I think that yep that was the one, or whichever part of that ledge is the most protuberant - I slide to the right and ended up on the top of that, then tried to back up to get a better line and BAM!

Lack of experience, oh well...

Ditto, Moab Rim seemed like mostly a snoozer (except when a truck broke down on 'the line' on the way down and I had to go outside of him. Took a strap just for safety). Behind the Rocks, especially the first hill, scared the %%#^%(&%$ out of me having to turn left, tilting downhill badly, just above a BIG hole where if I slipped it would not be a 1 or 1.5 roll but 4x, 5x, 6x or worse...

It was good to do it but I won't do it again. Just past the line between thrilling fun and stupid fear. Good thing Joe Callegia was spotting, he is among the very best. I just looked at him and not anything else.

My least favorite obstacle in Moab is coming down White Knuckle! I would rather climb it any day! I guess I'm a control freak and letting gravity take over is not my idea of a good time!

Funny, I rather enjoyed White Knuckle. Good spotting, again.

I'm scared of heights and coming down dropoffs always messes with my head!

I'm scared of heights too! And off-camber fears just got worse.
