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

If you duck into the trees duck in the trees between Mid way between Holywood line and Upper Dynamite, you're sure for a big surprise! This route can contain a mandatory drop or two (10-15 feet), depending on conditions, and the exact line you take, and is definitely the most gnarly of Hollywood and Upper Dynamite (if shorter), as it will take you into steep terrain with massive boulders and narrow gaps between trees.

Know your limits, and drop in here if you're totally comfortable on steep, mogulled blacks, and are preparing for double blacks.
