I have no interest in gravity/dirt jump stuff or flow/berm, I am most interested in rocky, technical trails.

Any advice to get over the hump?
Make some friends that are better than you and ride with them. It helps a lot to see their lines and techniques. Take a look at youtube videos too. Start with Jeff Lenosky and go from there. Oh - and session stuff; do it over and over to conquer certain sections; even better - session with other people.
