Start the mission: geology for beginners
Before you start looking for different rock carvings in RDR 2, you’ll need to start the job. To do this, you’ll need to find the stranger located northwest of the town of Strawberry. After starting the task, you will need to send the coordinates of each to Francis Sinclair from any post office. You can wait and do this once.
Bonus Rock Sculptures
To find some or all of the rock carvings you will get some rewards!
- One Rock Carving: Kentucky Bourbon, $ 10.
- Five Rock Sculptures: A Rock Statue
- Ten rock sculptures: an ancient copper compass used to create a talisman.

List of RDR 2 rock carving sites
Here is a full list of rock sculptures that you can find in the game. I include a video that would help if I got misled some of these. I will try to describe it as best as possible, but some may be more difficult to find. Besides describing where to find it, I include a short, poorly explained part about the exact shape of the sculpture.
Rock Rockving Site No. 1
We head back to snow for the first location. Make sure to wear some winter clothes so that the cores do not burn much. Off the road to Mount Hagen, you will find a rock carving of a plateau over a city.
Rock Carving Site No. 2
For the second location, we will head to the Weimar Strait located north of the granite corridor and to the west of Cotorra Springs. Exit the bridge, on the left side of the water, and next to the wall. This is hard to describe, maybe people doing yoga?
Rock Carving Site No. 3
In this mountainous region west of Cumberland Forest and east of the Dakota River, you can find the third stone sculpture. You’ll see a kind of path around this mountainous region, running around and you have to hit it. This sculpture looks like a city that was hit by an atomic bomb, and there is even an atomic symbol engraved in it.
Rock Carving Site # 4
The fourth number will be found near the Bacchus station above the mountains to the southwest of it and to the northeast of Fort Wallace. Head to this area, then up the mountain and facing the bridge you will see some kind of path. Go left and follow this small path and you will find sculpture. This looks like a depiction of only an angel, or it may be Icarus who flew near the sun.
Rock Rockving Site No. 5
For the fifth sculpture you can find it south of Moonstone Pond and Grizzlies East. In one of the mountain peaks, you will find here a stone inscription of the Egyptian pyramids.
Rock Carving Site # 6
On a sixth rock carving, we will head to the northeastern part of the map at Annesburg on Roanoke Ridge. This is located east of Deer Cottage that should be marked on your map. Away from the path, you will see some mountainous areas, one of which is the sculpture you are looking for. This also looks Egyptian and has a sphinx, but it also indicates a comet and a person walking through a gateway of some kind.
Rock Carving Site No. 7
Head to the seventh rock-cutting site that will take us directly near the Elysian Swimming Pool. This is south of Annesburg, northwest of Van Horn Trading Post. This should be very clear to find, as it is located just outside the circular path on the map below and dug into a unique rocky area. This is an interesting sculpture, as it depicts two human heads, male and female, with what might look like creation?
Rock Carving Site No. 8
The eighty location makes you travel northeast of the Flatnik station and near the Dakota River. Climb up this area and look for the vertical mountain side and run beside it to the right until you reach the rock sculpt. This sculpture features a movable belt but also appears to show the man from the gate showing the invention of the wheel.
Rock Carving Site No. 9
Ninth sculpture can be found in Big Valley near Shann Mountain and northeast of Hawks Eye Creek. This is another snowy area, so prepare some winter gear when you head here. It is not too far from the beaten road rolling around the mountain. It’s really along the dotted path, and you’ll know you’re in the right place if you come across a rock load and some dinosaur bones under it. Stone carving DNA double helix.
Rock Carving Site No. 10
To carve the tenth and final rocks, you will go west of strawberries and along the coast of Lake Owanjila. You’ll be right next to the water and see some rock formations appearing near the shore. At the second level the sculpture will be in the form of circles and perhaps the sun along the lines of some other things that we have seen in previous sculptures.
Head to the post office
After completing all the sculptures, you will need to go to the post office and send the coordinates in the mail. You will now have to wait two days for an invitation from Francis Sinclair by regular mail. Get the invitation and the next step of the mission will open.
End of Mission: Beginners Geology – II
Head to the exact same place where this mission started completely to talk to Francis Sinclair. I’m not going to spoil the end of the mission, but that’s an interesting conclusion if you’re done!
