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

Dog Leg is a technical, extreme line that spills into Hunziker Main.

Lots of snow is needed here for the line to be skiable, yet deep snow can work against you and make the real line harder to find at the top.

Don't go in here alone.

Better yet, see if you can get a qualified local, or patroller, to take you.
