A magnificent sandstone monolith, measuring 2.1m tall, 0.65m wide and 0.4m deep, located on a flattened ridge top. It is earthfast, oriented E-W and tapers to a blunt and square point.

The monument is likely to retain significant archaeological deposits and enhance our knowledge of prehistoric ritual practices.
