Exposure

Exposure

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) 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.

As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

The entrance to Rush 2 is a large, eastern aspect convexity that is often wind loaded.

Avalanche danger here is significant.

Getting caught in an avalanche would mean being taken over and through cliffs.

Make sure you are aware of the weather, avalanche conditions, and your ability before committing to a route like Rush 2. There are ways to sneak through Rush 2 without any air, but most ways through this section of cliffs require at least some air.

Airs can be as small as 10 feet or as big as 30 feet.

Some routes through Rush 2 can provide double drops that link multiple 20+ feet cliffs.
