It's a bit hard to see in this photo (perhaps because the visibility was not so good here), but Gene has just come down a small pitch onto a hard-to-see roll. Much of the terrain is rolling with large covered rocks here and there, and sometimes the terrain change was hard to see, even in good visibility. Many, perhaps most, crashes occurred in these places. For example, I crashed once when I turned on a boulder into thin air.
