An anticline is an A-shaped fold of rock. The rocks inside an anticline are always folded upwards. The opposite of an anticline is a syncline. Usually anticlines and synclines alternate, unless the geological structure is disrupted by fractures or thrusting. In the case, where  the anticline did not flip over,  the rock in the inner part of the anticline older than the outside rock of the anticline.
