Flow from bottom right to top left. Granitic gneiss. The rock projection is ~4 m across. flute(s), in a characteristic position relative to them, this being downstream and to one side. Thus, assemblages of closely spaced and conjugate flutes are created with a characteristic diagonal alignment of individuals. These may be termed en echelon assemblages and can be seen in the illustration of Maxson (1940: Fig. 1 therein) and in Figure 39 of this report. Kor et al. (1991) and Shaw (1996) report en echelon assemblages of sichelwannen.
