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

A steep and tight chute with rocks poking out everywhere.

The top hanging apron is a no fall zone with rocks lurking under the surface at every turn.

The terrain will naturally funnel you into the tight choke which may also have a small drop over some rocks, where a straight line will spit you out at high speed into the bottom of Great Scott.

This can be a busy intersection depending on who is skiing Great Scott, so a spotter is never a bad idea.
