The sill of the Dasses here forms a low westward facing cliff. Only a metre or so in thickness, it consists of highly altered Markle basalt transitional to mugearite. The top or the sill is well-exposed and shows a number of north-westγouth-east corrugations. representing casts of drag-folds in the overlying sediments caused by the movement of the magma. A few centimetres of very slightly indurated sediment can be seen above the sill and directly below the turf at the eastern margin of the outcrop.
