If at first you don't succeed,

I've looked at it a few times there appears to be a section missing after he
stalls the engine (10secs) when it resumes he's already sliding with the
brakes locked + the backend coming round having lost it, difficult to say
whether it went sliding with the brakes locked on the restart attempt or he
broke adhesion trying to climb the last bit , paniced and locked up still
glad it wasnt me I've never liked going down backwards
