32   Boyd Crevices This labyrinth of crevices cut deep into the Escarpment rock is a delight to explore. They are the result of "cambering", when small cracks in the rock deepen over time, and gradually large blocks pull away from the cliff face. They form roughly cubic shapes, due to the crystal makeup of the rock. Google
