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.

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

Description

A more serious and steeper entrance to Caenlochan area.

The slope is steeper and more sustained than Banana Gully, and it is avalanche prone.

Make sure to find the correct entry and be aware of the alternative entry (see description of Banana Gully).

The access is from Glas Maol and best left for low avalanche and good visibility day.
