Before you pick out a line, you could do the old "Ehhhh, I think it's probably roughly maybe about a 40-degree slope, I guess", or you could whip out the Backcountry Access Slope Meter and actually get a real reading of the angle of the slope you're checking out. BCA hooked this inclinometer up with red, orange, and yellow markings to easily point out the most dangerous slope angles, and included a compass so you can double-check your aspect at the same time.
