Looks like chunks of sediment thrust up. Could you tell if most of the peaks were lifted in the same direction? Most peaks tend to have steeper north faces like in the Sierra due to more glacial activity from less sun exposure.

That I can't say for sure but it seemed so at times. If you haven't been up to see this area, it is an amazing place.
