They are large blocks of basalt that have broken away from the canyon rims and remained intact as they slid down and away. In most cases, they have rotated in a counter-clockwise direction as they slid, thus ending up tilted backwards. Numerous very large blocks form terraces in the gorge. This tilted block  slid away from the cliff face seen behind.
