|I have known this formation as "The Shark Fin" although the "Mallory Flatironette" makes sense with its proximity above the famous cave.|

^^^ The Shark's Fin is the formation above the cave and between The Hand and The Finger. The Mallory Flatironette is the small slab down and left of the terminus of the cave trail. Its singular summit lies just down and left (S/SE) of the cave entrance.
Some confusion here is probably caused by the height in the description, which is may be accurate, but only places you perhaps 60 or 70' above the point on the Mallory Cave Trail where it leaves dirt and goes onto rock.
