Details of palaeo-fault escarpments at various localities (for location, see Fig. 2). a, b Southern slope of Sex Rouge (595313/130693; see Fig. 7b, c for panoramic location). a Step-wise geometry of the escarpment resulting in a subvertical undulating surface (yellow line) that has been silicified. b Syn-sedimentary breccia preserved in the flatter parts of the escarpment under the onlapping deposits. c Plan des Roses (598727/136183): Amden Formation together with the Tertiary succession onlap the previously formed escarpment. d Mittaghorn crest (599366/136781): the escarpment is displaced by late Alpine transtensive faults
