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.

Medium Exposure (E2)As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

This line will take you to the top of Testa Grigia, follow the same line to reach Colle Pinter then you will have to go left pointing the north slope to reach the top of Monte Pinter.

From here you will have to reach bivacco Lateltin and the climb the SE ridge towards the top of Testa Grigia.

You can ski down the same line you climbed, but be aware that this is a serious steep terrain, where every mistake could result in serious injuries! In order to climb the ridge you could need a rope and crampons, ice axe and harness.

On your way down you can ski the line that descends from Colle Pinter or you can directly go back towards Champoluc.
