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

Follow the Cirque traverse all the way down and go around the very rocky "p-tex point" (you will know when you are there).

Tip- Side stepping on rocks works way better than trying to slide over them.

Once you round the corner you will see the tram tower 3 run on the skier's right side of the ridge.

It's a wide "chute" and not the longest run in the world, but P-tex point stops a lot of people, so you can usually find good snow below here.
