Apparently he went over while trying to clean the crack at the choke point on the last bit out to the point. That's from facebook so not confirmed but really sad.
It's all speculation at best as nobody was with him.

I was almost that guy 20 years ago. I stuffed my wheel into the crack (stupidly) riding back from the lookout. Luckily I endo-Ed straight forward, another dude caught my bike with one hand while it was falling over the side. Luckily it was a really light Moots!
Scared the sh¡t outta me, I never rode out to the point again.
Dumb and cocky, lesson learned.
Vibes to the dude’s family.

I stop with my clients at that exact spot and show them that video from the cameras perspective. Puts it in a whole new light. At any other spot along the trail, we could and would do that feature. But...at that point, the consequences for failure are epic and total.

If it wasn't the spot in the video, is it at the other big viewpoint (dead end) to the West? We rode it in March and I'm trying to figure out where based on the description.

I have a severe fear of heights and wouldn't go within 20 feet of that cliff. If not even more...

I've hopped that crack on Amasa but a little little further in from the edge. I'm not sure what the heck that guy was thinking.

None of this took place in Moab.
