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.
A ‘U’ shaped wide chute just to the left of Heart Chute with incredible steep left wall.
The left wall can handle around two or three steep turns.
The main entrance is steep at the beginning and then flattens quickly at the exit between the rock walls.
The snow on the right side can be quite variable due to sun exposure.
