Singletrack riding w/Shimano road cranksJakob

I have always had mtn cranks on my cross bike and was wondering if anyone has had any trouble with Shimano road crank durability. I know they're fine to use for racing cross, but I ride my cross bike yearround on some pretty rough terrain.

I've never had a problem with my ultegras. They are basically the same as a mountain crank, just a little longer.
