Geologists have difficulty explaining this 350 mtr high sandstone monolith in the centre of Australia. They tend to agree however that the vertical ridges are formed as the result of sedimentary layers – suggesting of course that this rock was once laying on its side.
Given that the 350 mtrs we see above the surface is only the tip of the rock – with 3 miles (5 klms) beneath the surface – it is difficult to envisage what geological force might have tipped it 90 degrees – leaving the soft sandstone intact?
