Face climbing up edges and pockets.
Right of the Main Bulge on Metro Wall this climb tackles the cool looking Shield found to the right of the loose looking corner formed by the Metro Bulge. In the Beta Topo picture it tops out RIGHT of the Green plant seen at the FAR RIGHT of the picture.
From the Base of Metro wall, head right along the base. A clean lower section of rock is found in ~20 feet. To the right of this is a dirty, lower angle "trough". Look up above the clean rock to the shield directly above. Scramble up the lower rock (no pro, easy) to gain a ledge and bolt found above some LARGE holes. Continue climbing up onto the shield proper to the top.
