Me just below the namesake "shield" on t...


From PATC-MS guide: Next to the Longhorn pillar is a right facing dihedral topped with a roof that looks like a small medieval shield. Climb in the corner where there are good if awkward holds on the left, and precious little on the blank face to the climber’s right. The crux for the normal variation is below the roof (pro in crack). Once at the roof, stem left and layback the flake on the left to gain the arête to the left of the route. Climb up 20 more feet to exit via a right sloping ledge. A harder variation (5.9+) involves climbing through the crack in the right of the roof.


Next to the Longhorn pillar. Start by the bent tree.


Not too hard to build a toprope anchor, though you'll need some gear.
