    Cheers Chris, good tips and will try not to ride away from a steep drop at my local woods which is like the one you show, its on the edge of an old disused quarry. What put me and my son off was the fact that the descent was covered in leaves. Years ago I rode it on a dry Summer day as the trail was clearly visible. I think I would say, make sure any leaves and debris on the descent isn't obscuring pit holes, rocks or other nasties for a potential OTB. My son did suggest we scurry down the slope to clear the leaves but it's just too steep for that.

    it took me a while, but after you build confidence and you dial the technique, you can drop down almost anything, it is so scary yet so much fun!. Thanks for the video, it was neat:)
