Analysing terrain data

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of 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): Certain death in the case of a fall.
On the track of the Etale strong of 700m of D+ with passages at 30°, you already have to be more experienced and comfortable with conversions because it climbs! With a departure from Les Joux at an altitude of 1300m, and an arrival at the first aid station at 2000m, it is less isolated from the alpine world than the Beauregard piste, but the arrival at Belvedere offers a full view over the Mont Blanc A rather sporty and demanding route in the middle of the fir trees, marked out in purple, which offers beautiful views of the village, the Beauregard plateau and the Aiguille massif.
