Grunge is one of the few places I've seen that look as steep as they are. Incredible really that snow sticks to it.
I eyeballed the Peak/Saddle Chute off Fissile as 55 - 50 at the top for a good 100 ft scoping it out this weekend. Unfortunately the snow's all scrubbed from it by wind so its glare ice and massive exposure skiing at the present - will try it out with a little more snow.
Exhilaration on Whistler is 55 degrees at the top for about 60 feet then mellows out to 45 with exposure of a 30 ft rock band for the top turns.
Hawaii 5-0 is "only" 50 degrees. Skiers right of Hawaii is unskiable unless its about 4 m of snow but is 55-60 degrees for the first 30 feet or so.
Don't Swill on Blackcomb Glacier is about 50 degrees but is very narrow.
There are lots of chutes in the W/B sidecountry that are much more exposed and steeper then inbounds. Off Garibaldi and Joffre - just off the top of my head - there are chutes that are the same way but much longer and continuous; our Coastal snowpack makes for very sticky snow in chutes.
