Comments: The quadr ilateral was established as a small triangulation array across the Santa Ynez fault, and the most recent survey measured slope lengths with an HP3808A distance meter. The array was sited across the fault trace according to Dibblee (1966), but according to his most recent mapping (Dibblee, 1988), only one of the four corner bench marks is south of the fault.
