GCZ5FD Mogollon Rim (Earthcache) in Arizona, United

The Mogollon Rim marks the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. This escarpment was not formed by a fault, but rather by the uniform erosion back from a monocline that formed over a fault. In a monocline, layers bend in one direction between layers of rock, kind of like a ramp.

Henry Mountains – Jan's Jaunts and Jabberings

The monocline, or one-sided uplift of the Earth's crust, is a premier example of the bending and folding of rock layers. The Waterpocket Fold is notable for its great length of multiple layers of exposed and carved colorful sedimentary rock.

STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY - National Park Service

The monocline apparently is superimposed on a zone of late Paleozoic thrust faults. The southeast margin of the Guadalupe Mountains uplift coincides with the Reef Escarpment which may have resulted partly from Cenozoic rejuvenation of a late Paleozoic fold, the Bone Spring monocline.

    In the north the monocline is approximately in line with the Anakie volcanoes and may lie along the same fracture plane at depth. At Anakie East, the escarpment is only 10 to 15 m high, but the displacement increases rapidly towards the south so that at Lovely Banks the monocline is a substantial relief feature 70 m high.

According to recent sulfur-exploration maps, the monocline in the basin intersects the reef somewhere between Rattlesnake Canyon and Carlsbad Cavern (Fig. 12).
