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.
Hike the ridge which is straight ahead of the first right corner of the Rossinyol piste.
It's an easy hike which can take around 40 minutes depending on snow conditions and equipment used.
Once at the peak drop to the north-east face through the clear area in the forest.
With good snow cover virtually the whole face should be skiable.
The line has kind of a wide creek shape and the middle of this is the clearest way to get down; just keep to the fall line without traversing too much.
Finally you will end up on a service road.
Hike up the road to meet the Rossinyol pistes again.
