Analysing terrain data
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.
The UnNamable Buttress is a pretty technical, rocky zone.
There will usually be great snow in here, but it may be lying on top of steep rock faces.
It just doesn't seem to hold the snow like other parts of the mountain.
On big snow years, this place is great.
Early in the season, you will want to be very careful in this area, make your turns like you're going to hit rocks.
It holds cold snow all season long and doesn't get sluffed off by patrol.

Make your way down towards the gut of Slushman's Ravine.
