This is the second area you come to on High Eagle dome when hiking from Friend Rock Camp.

This side of the dome gets late morning/noon shade and some of the routes tend to have a more Lichen. This is a great place to climb while waiting for the main wall to go into the shade. Routes here are long and require doing a rappel on the way down.

The shape shifter area primarily has sport routes, but a few mixed routes do exist.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail until you reach a set of roofs. The biggest roof is on the left side of the wall. Gravity Pool, 5.12b, starts on the arete below this roof.

Clip high and pull the overhang and continue up a cryptic dihedral. Bust another crux past a fixed draw to pull a second roof. The first anchor is right above the roof at ~20m. If continuing to the second anchor it is smart to extend some of the draws on the first section. Continue up an easy section until the face thins to a five foot double arete.
