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.
Mini extreme skiing! Enter the right/higher Black Forest gate.
The traverse wraps a corner then goes across a flat where it forks, you want the right traverse that will take you to the Carbonate Cliffs.
This is mini Alaska when the rocks get covered, and when they don't it can be ugly.
The exposure is real, and falling is certainly not recommended.
The further right you go the steeper and tighter it gets.
Stay left and in the tight chute to avoid most obstacles.
The main apron is a big scree field so there are usually big rocks poking out or lurking just below the surface.
