|This is about to hurt, real bad. See that step, right where the log points? I didn't.|
2: Commit! Commit commit commit! It’s a scary word, I know, but if you aren’t 100% committed to riding the section, and you lose your nerve halfway through, you’ll be in a much, *much* worse position than you would have been. Really, this is just a continuation of step one. If you get off and walk the section before you ride it, then decide you still want to ride it, then do it! If you decide it’s too rough/steep/slick and you want to walk it, then do it! Just don’t decide halfway through that you want to be walking instead.

The take-away lesson here is to be decisive in your adventures. If you decide to ride it, you better not change your mind. If you decide to walk it, well, try it next time you’re out there! Consider even just walking through it a couple times and looking at the section (everything looks bigger from the uphill side), then riding it! Whatever you choose to do, though, stick with it. Don’t change your mind halfway through.
