View from Mont Chètif towards northeast, Les Grandes Jorasses (4208 m) in the left background, Courmayeur in the right foreground. Note the system of backscarps indicating deformations of the northwestern slope of Mont de la Saxe, and the landslide patterns at the lower slope. Since a sudden acceleration of the sliding, possibly affecting the villages of Entrèves and La Palud, cannot be ruled out, this slope is subject of extensive research and monitoring.
