Exposure

Exposure

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.

Extreme Exposure (E4)In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.

Description

This couloir gives you an aesthetic view on the wild side of Monte Rosa, it's not an easy line though! It requires mountaineering skills since you'll need to rappel down an ice fall (40m).

This line requires good knowledge of the snow and the mountains.

In order to access this line you have to skin up towards Passo Bettolina and then go down to reach a valley.

Here the first rocky slope will give you access to the couloir.
