facing direction (younging) The direction (upward or downward) in which the stratigraphy throughout most of a fold becomes progressively younger. Anticlines face upwards, by definition; antiforms may face upwards or downwards depending on the direction in which the stratigraphy is younging. It may be determined by such ‘way-up’ criteria as graded bedding, sole structures, and cross-bedding.
