The compact rock wall comprises Palaeozoic sandstone of thickness up to 60 metres with plentiful caverns.
 
 

The platform above the village of Klokočí is ended with a steep rock front. The rock wall is about 1600 metres long, here and there divided by isolated rock towers and faults (called the Klokočské Průchody). The rock wall offers spectacular views of the northern and southeastern parts of Český Ráj. The rock wall itself comprises abundant cave hollows. At the southeastern part of the Klokočské Skály, there is a ruin of Rotštejn Castle.

Klokočské rocks, the ruins of Rotštejn castle

Klokočské rocks form a part of the sandstone block which in the west transfers to Jizera valley, it is surrounded by high rock wall in the north-west, and with the stream of Stebénka in the south, which cut the sandstone alongside the fracture. The sandstone block is tilted, therefore indicated as cuesta. The Klokočské rocks are located in the north-west around the ruins of Rotštejn and in Green quarry. Klokočské rocks show interesting records of load during the orogenetic processes, and they are recognized for the richness of surface shapes and caves.
