Dette er en nesten fullstendig igjengrodd kalkforekomst. Det sees noen mindre overgrodde blokker og antydning til et gammelt lite brudd. Kalken er en grålig og urein kalkstein. Bruddet har vært ca. 10x20 meter stort. På grunn av overdekking er det ikke mulig å studere grenser mot sidebergart eller andre detaljer av kalken. Kjemisk analyse viser at kalken har et CaO innhold på 46% og et MgO innhold på 0.77 %, dette tilsvarer et kalkspatinnhold på 81.24%
