Edmaiers Secret, on the east side of Buckskin Gulch about one mile upstream of the start of its long enclosed slot section. The secret is a group of layered sandstone domes and cones, with a knobbly, brain-like texture, crossed by thin fins, often perpendicular to the underlying strata. These 'brain rocks' are one point of interest, but better, photogenically, are the erosive structures formed by the fins, which in some places combine to create larger protruding mounds containing very thin sandstone plates at various angles.
