That's one of the things I appreciated about this one, and one of the reasons I figured it should be shared. There is another point around the 3:30 mark or so where they are climbing before dropping again that was most definitely a no fall zone. I was also interested in seeing how he responded (in the quick cuts where you saw them) to the various avalanches he set off on the spines.Generally I agree with you, but this is one of the better ones where they pan around so you can get a sense of how steep it is.
I don't think I have enough balls for the 0:50 drop in. Wow.
