As it climbs out of Deepdale the walk crosses limestone and shale sequences that give much of the Dales their characteristic 'stepped' scenery. Binks Quarry below Great Coum was a source of the fossiliferous Dent Marble, blocks of which lie in abundance. It also lies alongside a corrie carved by ice during the last stages of the most
recent glacial event.
