Instead of taking the rock berm, you roll up and over the berm where you have this option to drop down a cutoff. What makes this difficult is the very steep boulder face that drops to a rutted out dirt patch. Not easy to roll without going over the bars. You have to lean back and keep your wheel in front of you without getting to much speed from the top drop in.
