This is an exposure of late Cretaceous deepwater conglomerates, Cerro Toro Formation, Cerro Benitez, Southern Chile. They were deposited in a foreland basin, probably by very large turbidity currents able to carry cobble-sized material. For more details, see this paper: Hubbard, S. M., Romans, B. W., & Graham, S. (2008). Deep-water foreland basin deposits of the Cerro Toro Formation, Magallanes basin, Chile: architectural elements of a sinuous basin axial channel belt.
