Party of three headed up Bat Crack (8) linking wit...
The Shield has sunny slab cragging on the south side of the dome on some of the best rock in the area.
Follow trail to the dome, and continue around to the south side. The shield is the massive slab under a long roof.

Anyone know what the route just left of "Something on the Shield" is called or rated? It was a fun climb, and I was just curious. Had fun exploring this area last weekend.

Short route just left is 'Trigger Happy'. It is given 10a, but I've always felt the tenuous moves down low to be hard. Most of the routes on this part of the dome check in at about the same range (10 through 11-) it seems to me.
