Abstract

The sediments of a large accumulation landform, interpreted as one of 6 Pleistocene rock glaciers occurring in the Ślęża Massif, are described. The sediments have been subject to strong compression and the main deformation mechanism is that of shearing. It is inferred that ice was necessary for the debris transport. Because the geomorphological setting excludes a glacigenic origin, the sediments are interpreted to result from the creep of permafrost, i.e. the landform is a relict rock glacier
