What damage? I was talking about the "V"-shape. The "such a sharp V" as you called it yourself. The V I had drawn with red lines in the photo.
I never said that the damage is part of the original design, that's nonsense. The small "V"-shape in the middle is part of the design yes and it's still intact.
I think you mean the V-shape of the whole stoneblock and that's damaged, yes.
Please try to read better, I'm getting bored of constantly explaining my posts.
The photo was taken by the Edgars who described the Step as "broken to a considerable extend in the middle". They did not refer to it as showing any erosion or as part of the original design.
Maybe they make mistakes sometimes? I think they are wrong. I haven't seen it myself for 20 years. Just like the shaft water marks.
Meanwhile, how do you explain that huge gash in the west wall of the portal to the Antechamber and the similar gash taken out of the west ramp wall below the Step?
Just damage and these have nothing to do with the V-shaped block. The V-shaped block is part of the design, damage is just damage.
Also, if that much water came down that V to cause a visible erosion of that stone at all, why do we not see any erosion on the floor of the GG under that V?
There is erosion. Just look at the pic.
