This is the classic view of the Morcles nappe structure - seen at its type area of the Dent de Morcles. the visible cliff section is about 500m high. It shows folded Mesozoic strata (M). Use this view and the section through the nappe to deduce the facing and vergence of the fold pair. The fold hinges plunge gently towards 060 here.
