Geocache Description:

The above mentioned Coordinates represent a great place with an excellent view. You can find a typical board mountain landscape. Spend some time and have a walk to enjoy...!


The finger cliff (afrikaans: Vingerklip) is developed by erosion from the 30 million year old limestone layers Monument in the proximity of the city Outjo in Namibia. It is about 35 meters high and has at its basis an extent of 44 meters. It is in the Ugab valley. This river valley is developed in prehistoric time, when the Ugab still led more water . Beside the finger cliff still numerous further board mountains and remainder rock protrude tallow approximately from that.


 

 

A board mountain, also Mesa mentioned (Spanish: mesa = table, board), is a mountain with a far summit level, which is usually a consequence of flatstoring sedimentary rocks. Its mountain-slopes are often pronounced as steep rock slope. The majority of the board mountains have in the sketch an oblong form, i.e. the high surface has a smaller expansion in a direction. Typical board mountains are e.g. in the Elbsandsteingebirge, in addition, in the Frankish and Swabian Alb, where they are the result of Schichtstufen. Another type are the board mountains, whose summit corridor consists of a Lavadecke. Here the mountain form is less a consequence of the flat Sedimentierung, but the hardness of the rock. Well-known board mountains are the board mountains in South Africa and Suriname, further Ben Bulben, lily stone, Tepui, Szczeliniec Wielki and Amba.
