Redwings, Blue Fangs, and Black Tideings.
The most dominant feature in the horizon if you are anywhere remotely close to the mountain(and many places more remote than that). Shield Mountain is located at the north head of the Shieldspine mountains (go figure). The mountain dwarfs all mountains in the region save perhaps the largest of the mountains that make up the Jaw of the North. The largest of which is still only 2/3 the size of Shield mountain. Many brave adventurers and explorers have ventured up the hazardous cliffs and crags of Shield Mountain and few have made it more than 2/3 the way up and lived to tell about it. Its safe to say no one has made it to its peak and survived.
There are many tales and legends about what lies at the top of Shield Mountain. Many tell of great dragons of ice and frost giants. Some believe that the peak of Shield Mountain holds the answer to any and all questions a person may have and that the comprehension of such things would kill you if the cold didn’t.
What it looks like. But bigger! Way bigger.
