Exposure

Exposure

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs…) 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.

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

Description

This line is a true aesthetic steep skiing run.

it requires excellent skiing skills and also excellent mountaineering skills.

It is a very steep couloir blocked in the middle by a 60m rappel that you will have to set up on your own.

The view is amazing since you're surrounded by the whole Monte Rosa.

the line is exposed to avalanches so it requires firm snow conditions.
