If that scares you some than I would rethink Mtn. riding. Cooke City riding area has all of that. I suspect if he would of had rideing buddies along, one of them would of shot over the top. (I do endorse riding in a 4 to 6 person group and not alone). That climb looks innocent enough. When the trees stop, and blue skies begin is your sign of an oopsy! Good save!
