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.
A pleasant climb leads to a midway option of a fun, flowing descent littered with berms and rolling jumps, or the continuation of the climb to the top of Hospital Fell Ridge.
From here there are great views across the Northern Peaks of the Lake District and an even longer, fun-filled, fast-flowing descent down sweet singletrack.
