Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of the skier 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): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.
At the top of the Tougnete 2 Chairlift and immediately head left along and up the ridge past the pisteurs hut.
It's barely 5 minutes along the obvious ridge towards the Roc de Tougne, from where you can access the face heading towards the Roc de Tougne double drag lift, way off in the distance.
There are many variations of this route, simply by going further along the ridge and dropping into the bowl below.
Worth doing your homework from a distance as the odd couloir ends in a cliff band.
The first access point along the ridge is a good one.
Traverse left and down the face and then head to your right on a steep rocky traverse.
This will take you to a large and wide open face.
Dont get too greedy at the bottom and lose too much height otherwise you will have a snowy walk out! Head to the Roc de Tougne double drag lift for the next challenge...
