The limestone band above Black Shiver, Ingleborough
The limestone band above Black Shiver, Ingleborough
This band of limestone forms one of the prominent escarpments visible on the west face of the mountain. It is the second dark tier below the summit plateau in this view of the face SD7374 : Gullies and crags, Black Shiver face of Ingleborough. The much thicker (and geologically older) Great Scar Limestone which forms the characteristic limestone scenery around the district can be seen far below, lit by a shaft of sunlight. Beyond, rising out of the gulf of Chapel-le-Dale, is Whernside with Great Coum on the left and the rounded Howgill Fells appearing in between.
