Jusangjeolli Cliff is composed of pillar shaped rocks that regularly protrude. When changes in the pressure occur due to crustal movements, flexural folding, weathering, and surface erosion, magma comes out of the cracking rocks on the surface. The cliff, situated at Daljeong-ri, Pohang, was discovered in an old quarry, which is basalt erupted in the Cenozoic era (at the end of Tertiary period).
