In a line over the middle part of the rock surface there are three big wheel crosses, where the eastern one has a double ring and two horn-like protuberations ending in cup marks. One of those are ending abruptly far away from the wheel-cross because of exfoliation. Two of the other wheels also have horn-like protuberations.
