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 Third Virtue is the widest of the four, but tends to be way rockier.
It is best to wait until mid season to attempt this line.
It is a true no fall zone, and you could get very badly hurt if you botch a turn down the Third.
Ski past the Second Virtue to a wide, steep, rocky face.
this is the Third.
Drop in making careful turns.
You'll have to go just left of the fall line to get through, there is a decent size cliff to the right.
You'll run out into a sluffed out Hidden and should be ready to go fast.
The snow will stay good in the Third, but it gets skied pretty often.
Its best to get here first.
