The openings look man-made. It looks like some kind of fortress.

They are man-made (or woman-made, who knows?)

Not a fortress.

Looks to me like the remains of some sort of ramp where beams would be inserted into the holes and then planks would be laid perpendicular to the beams. I don't even know what to call such a thing. "Transverse cliff face cantilever ramp" maybe?

Cliff Tombs?
