Summary: Two potholes with a deep channel around them and two axe grinding grooves along a steep ledge. A short distance away are engravings of a shield and fish (not found).

On the opposite side of the road to the Waratah Track – part of the Arden Trig Station group of Aboriginal engravings – are multiple potholes and two carvings along a ledge. Although only one of these potholes was documented by McCarthy, there are two which both have a deep, grooved channel around them.

The two pothole are linked by a horizontal channel.

Along the same, steep ledge are two axe grinding grooves.

To the north of the pothole, McCarthy documented a small fish and a “shield lacking the crossed line decoration” – these are currently covered by fallen trees and vegetation, and could not be found.
