This was a multi-story Tsankawi dwelling and storage facility. Not only are the caves on multi-levels, but the dwelling would have been extended out with brick walls made of the soft tuff stone and a roof made out of timber covering the whole complex. This is also one of the few places where a partial bricked up wall can be seen. There is a path, worn into the stone, leading to the top on the lefthand side of the picture.
