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.

Extreme Exposure (E4)In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.

Description

Rampage is short, but well worth the time and effort.

It's a pretty unique hanging ramp in the upper Mill B drainage.

You'll want to boot, and/or skin up this line to know what conditions are like.

Park at the S curve 4.3 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon, and hike up the Mill B trail to Lake Blanche.

From the lakes head up the E branch of the upper canyon.

Keep going into the uppermost cirque and you'll see Rampage.

This is your only real entry option as it's very hard to get to any other way.

Simply ski back down the track you came up, and make sure not to fall off the 500 foot cliff you're skirting above!
