Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extreme exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
The best route up Mont Noble from the village of Nax using the quieter paths.
You can be sure to find plenty of solitude in the company of wildflowers, and perhaps the odd herd of Herens cows grazing.
The path winds through the forest on nice narrow (but never technical) paths before traversing across the alpine meadows and to the clear summit of Mont Noble.
Fantastic views across to the Oberland, down the Rhone valley, and back towards Verbier and Mont Blanc from the summit.
Those wanting something more challenging can continue along to the col du cou and to the Lac de Louche.
A wonderful clear lake in the high alpine—a perfect spot for a picnic before making your way back the way you came, towards the Becs de Bosson or the Vallon de Rechy.
