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.
Very long trip, often divided into two parts thanks to the support of the refuge which is located on the track halfway. From this point on, wide slopes lead to the base of the North ridge, wide but still demanding and technical.
From the top you can enjoy an unparalleled view of the highest peaks of the adjacent valleys.
