I) the Carboniferous Limestone occurs in the synclinoria of Dinant and Namur, resting on Devonian, and overlain by Coal Measures. The smaller folds in the great synclinorium of Dinant give rise to extensive outcrops of the limestone near Dinant itself, whence the name Dinantian (= whole of the Carboniferous Limestone) has been derived.

Limestone | Our Geological Adventures
Above the carboniferous limestone we find the Yoredale sequence of rocks, which are a cycle of limestone, sandstone and shale which can be seen in steep escarpments and in the scree that spreads along the sides. This is what gives the top its almost tiered effect, as the different rock types are more and less resistant to weathering.
