A climber hauling at belay 12 on The Shield. This is an example of a good clean wall anchor.
  • Currently 5.00/5
A climber nears the end of the Triple Cracks pitch of The Shield. This is one of the crux pitches, especially if the route is climbed hammerless. This is the pitch where Charlie Porter placed 35 rurps on the first ascent.
  • Currently 5.00/5
A climber in the middle of the notorius Groove Pitch during the last rays of light of The Shield. While the crack appears big from a distance, it actually only takes copperheads, birdbeaks, and knifeblades.
  • Currently 5.00/5
This is the first in a sequence of three photos that shows a climber ascending the Shield Roof. This is the first of the many steep and exposed pitches on the Shield Headwall.
  • Currently 5.00/5
A climber cleaning the dramatic traverse on pitch 7 of The Shield. On this pitch, the cleaner will have to re-aid many of the placements and make a few lower-outs.

This is the center of the Shield Roof. While the climbing is awkward, the placements are all fixed making this section scary but manageable.
  • Currently 4.67/5
This is the end of the Shield Roof. This is crux of the pitch and the moment of maximum exposure.
