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.
Take Chair 4 to Chair 15 and then hike up to Melissa Coray Peak, then to continue to Peak 9795.
Skins can be helpful.
Two entrances from the summit of Peak 9795 create a Y Couloir that is decently pitched.
The snow can be extremely variable due to its western exposure.
Skier's right side tends to firm up from the melt-freeze cycle from direct sun exposure.
Stay to the skier's left to find better snow on the descent.
From here you can ski down a mellow slope area down to Emigrant Lake.
