Oklahoma Fold

This along a thruway road cut in Oklahoma, looking eastward. The rocks are a Pensylvanian conglomerate, and they form a fold structure. Note and trace the fold structure and consider some of the following questions. What type of fold is it (anticline or syncline)? Is the fold structure asymmetric (with one limb dipping more than the other)? Is there a well defined joint set evident in these rocks?
