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

OO Right is a broad face with some trees and a variety of open lines.

From the top of the Chair 6, traverse towards the Throne.

OO Right is the broad face between the chairline and Hamburger Basin.

Enter the trees below the traverse.

These openings can be narrow and steep.

Watch for tree limbs and rocks.

Once through the trees, the face opens to a variety of lines.

Work the skier's left below a rocky buttress for the best fall line.
