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.

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.

Description

To enter Whiplash locate the last bowl to drop in before the huge cliff band towards the end of Chainsaw Ridge.

Whiplash is only skiable depending on how the cornice has built up that year.

If good, this is a fun steep pitch, which isn't too narrow and doesn't expose many consequences if you fall.

That being said, make sure you check it out from below before you attempt this line, the cornice can get pretty big and unstable and the bowl immediately below it is often filled with huge chunks of avalanche/cornice debris which will cut the fun short.

Traverse lines to Faller's Pillow are something skier should be aware of, but also worth picking up to get a little bit more vertical in your run.
