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.
An open face that falls over a large cliff, this run is for experts only.
This slope is rarely skied expect during freeride competitions.
When the snowpack is deep, the skier's right side offers two narrow chutes that can be skied without mandatory air.
Skiers left goes over some tight trees embedded in cliffs.
An easier route exists by starting at the upper face and traversing under Upper Kookie.
