Six Blanc (VS)

Landslide, inactive rock glacier

Elevation: 2200-2400m  -   Massif: Valais Alps (Grand-Combin)  -   Commune: Orsières (VS)

A panoply of partially interlaced gravitational movements (landslide/sagging, solifluction, rock glacier) can be found on the northern slopes of the Six Blanc. This zone has been the object of occasional geodetic measurements since 2007. The magnitude of displacements varies from a few centimeters to a few decimeters per year depending on the location.
