The Shard's Ridge

The Shard sits on the west end of a long ridge along the north side of the Chaffin Creek.

"The Shard" is the series of highpoints about one third of the way from the left edge of this picture. Though from this angle the left-most highpoint looks much lower than the others, it is higher than all the others with the exception of the one to its immediate right (the actual summit at 9,883'), and then by only 47 feet.
