The Genoa Fault forms this large fault scarp on the western side of the Carson Valley at the foot of the Sierra Nevada. The inclination of the fault plane towards the viewer, the height of the Sierra Nevada, and the presence of Sierran granite in the footwall of the fault makes this a large normal fault. Slickensides, large vertical grooves in the rock, can be seen in some areas on the fault plane.
