English translation:...the overturned anticline in the hanging wall of the main (principal) fault...
Explanation:
...the overturned anticline in the hanging wall of the main fault ..
.... marked by a third-order fracture (or fault, depending on the context).

'Fracture' can be used safely in virtually all cases in reference to faults of different morphologies. Yes, 'anticlinal' is 'anticline'. Hanging wall of a fault is the rock mass above the fault surface.

anticline over-fracture; in the overhang of the main slope; third degree fault/rift


Explanation:
The above terminology comes from what I remember from taking geology courses back in college (I LOVED the field--wish I hadn't had two kids, so I could have gone on studying geology, but it took too much time out in the field and in the lab, and the kids couldn't stand being left in daycare all the time. Drat!)
