Therefore it does not see as many tracks as its neighbor Exterminator. Access from Snag Chutes or Lower Exterminator Ridge. Look for Caution/Cliff signs that mark its entrance. This "rock" is really a series of rocks. Look for the snow-filled slopes between the sloping cliffs. Once through, you can better scope your line for next time. A few of these lines lead right into trees, so don't jump blind. Below the cliffs enjoy this glade where the snow is often deeper than higher up on the ridge. Veer left or right when the trees get too deep to ski. Watch for tree wells.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

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.
