Summary: A shelter near the Terraborra North Ridge, which has multiple charcoal figures (including two kangaroos)

A long cliff-line below the Terraborra North Ridge has a number of caves and overhangs. Many look like suitable candidates for Aboriginal cave paintings, but only one of them contains rock art.

The shelter contains multiple charcoal figures, and a white hand stencil.

The partial hand stencil has three fingers; another partial white hand stencil is at 90 degrees.

Two of the the charcoal figures are wallabies, or kangaroos.
