Vers le Scex (2)

The name of the path that climbs up to the village does not have a saucy allusion. A "scex" is a rock. In toponymy, the word designates an isolated rock or a cliff and is found in many places in the Alps, in different forms (Sex, Sixt, Six). Here, the name ("Towards the Rock") simply means that the path leads to the rocky ridge.
