Analysing terrain data
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.
Stay right about 20 yards after you drop into Great Scott, there is a small traverse in the trees and around some rocks, that will drop you into the Hanging Bowl.
Here you have 2 options - take the double cliff fall line or take the smaller cliff out right.
The size of the cliffs greatly depends on the amount of snow and of time of year.
The double cliff drop is typically about a 3 footer to a 10 foot drop, but spits you out fast into the bowl below.
If you keep taking the traverse out right you will simply have to pick your feet up over some rocks to exit.
Either way you go you will find great snow.
