Cuernos del Paine, Chile. The black tops of these towers are Cretaceous shales, intruded by Miocene-age granitic rocks. Old rocks overlying younger granitic rocks are called "roof pendants." Another great example of a roof pendant is Mt Tom near Bishop, east of the Sierra Nevada. In Yosemite National Park, Red and Grey Peaks in the Clark Range are also roof pendants.
