Structure 12-S, masonry surface structure
About this Structure
Northeast corner of pueblo. Part of rim complex; located near base of cliff.
Built on ledge underneath overhang; ledge is approximately 2.5 m above modern ground surface.
The small size of this structure and its remote location on a ledge suggest it may have been used as a storage room. Access to this structure could have been from a second-story room to the east (Structure 21-S) and a second-story room to the west (Structure 20-S).
Visible walls have partly collapsed.
No excavations took place inside this structure.
