It is located on the left bank of the river Daugava near Geitviniski. It is a 36.5 m (in other sources – 42 m) high cliff from Quaternary rock. There is a sandstone of the Upper Devonian on the foot, in the 30s of the 20th century, here, in sandstones, used to be a cave. The slope reaches 38 degrees. The structure is mostly gravel, pebbles and boulders with moraine layers. There is a deepening behind the cliff, where underwater of the river Daugava flows and threatens to wash the cliff. Beautiful view of peculiar narrowing of the ancient valley of Daugava -“Daugava gates” can be seen from the scarp.
