Geo 365: Nov. 17, Day 321: Slickensides

Today we're looking at a different perspective on yesterday's photo, at the upper planar surface, which I claimed was a fault plane. Due to weathering, I think it's not as clear as it might be, but to my eye, it's pretty obvious that there are pervasive slickensides on this exposure. See below, where, in a reduced-size image, I've highlighted their orientation.
