Calculate the height of vertical DEM areas

is there a way to calculate the height of the vertical (or almost vertical) areas in a DEM?

I need it to determine the resistance of the terrain for the dispersal of tortoises. As tortoises are able to cope with some step heights but limited as soon as a certain value is reached, the vertical features can be crucial for the fragmentation of a terrain (from a tortoise point of view ).


Many thanks in advance for any ideas & inputs,
