Exposure

Exposure

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of falling.

Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.

Extreme Exposure (E4): Certain death in the case of a fall.

Description

Nastar is a short narrow line at the bottom of Kachina Peak off Main Street.

It's steeper than Main Street and with bumps in that give it a staircase feel.

Many years ago, the Nastar course was set up on Shalako below where the chute is.
