Steep and stout


Analysing terrain data



The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.

Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.

Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.

High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.

Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extreme exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.


This lower section is similar in nature to the upper although could be considered slightly rawer due to erosion.

There are more than enough root/rock drops, slabs and committing steeps to keep you on your toes.

This trail continues into the Heart of Darkness.
