Mainly sandstones and some of the conglomerate layers, formed during the Middle to the Late Jurassic, tongued near the fault. The light-colored member of the Curtis Formation is on top of the red Entrada Sandstone. It contains several fault planes and drag folds. The vertical offset of the most obvious fault is approximately 10 meters. The fault may be attributed to the Sevier orogeny (Neuhauser, 1988).
