The Underset Limestone forms the upper slopes and and the Main Limestone forms the summit of Holgate How at an elevation some 200m above the stream. The exposed face of the strata fall from the north to the south near Goats Bridge at NZ06500400 and in the opposite direction from south to north in a low cliff at stream level on the east bank of Kexwith Beck also at 300m elevation. Is this structure above Kexwith Beck an anticline?
