Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
Starting off as a rather wonderful woodland trail; playful, mild mannered and pleasant, you may be lured into wondering what all the fuss is about.
The trail then quickly narrows and an abyss opens up to your right indicating that now is the time to get ready.
What to expect? Switchback madness.
You'll take care as the surrounding airy-ness will instil a sense of tenseness.
The Switchbacks have changed over time and become more rounded but there are very few people in the world who have cleaned every single corner! Once the switchbacks are over you'll be treated to a steep and amazing plummet that will burn your brakes! Another set of slightly easier switchbacks will test you before screaming your way to the bottom.
There will be stories to be told from all.
