You're right, from this angle it does look a lot like the Shield as viewed from the N Crest Trail. As Paul D points out, though, there's really no comparison.... Jan 24, 2012
Nothing at all like the shield, other than it's big.
Rock is quartzite. Makes for some great holds and blank sections.

I believe this view is looking at the upper box where the truly good climbs are. Foolish Pleasures, 5.10 and 10+ pitches depending on how much of the lower 800 or so ft of 5.5 slabs that you third class. Apr 5, 2008
