Points A, B, and X are merely bifurcations rather than anabutment of two ridges at an angle.
If the appending ridge flows off the looping ridge smoothly in such a way that it forms a bifurcation and not an abutment of two ridges at a right angle, the recurve is considered as remaining intact.
Closer inspection shows that the looping ridge does not tend to go out the side from which it entered but rather seems to proceed downward ending in an abutment forming a definite angle of 90°.

Then began the placing of braces to hold up the piping until it should reach out to the abutment in the middle of the river.
Late on the following day the abutment in the middle of the river had progressed so far that the iron framework that was to hold the pipes could be put in place.
All the material for the purpose was in stock in the mills, save the cement for the concrete abutment out in the middle of the river.
Something bright glistened in the hands of the man under the abutment trestle.

Through the abutmentof the arch where the afternoon sun pours its brightness the waves have cut other arches not visible in the picture.
Being heavier than any other man of the party I thrust a leg through one snow-bridge, but I had just fixed my ice ax in the firm abutment and was saved the inconvenience and delay of dangling by a rope in a chasm.
