Parapet wall caps. Sheet metal? Asphalt?

My framer made a small parapet wall between the low-pitch roof on the back of the house (gable side) and the lean-to garage to install new garage rafters higher on the house. The new wall has T-111 siding. What options do I have for a parapet wall cap? I don't really like the look of a flat sheet metal cap. Is it possible to cut small wood triangles or make a ridge for the top of the wall and use asphalt roof ridge on top of it? Ideas?

Ok, I finally found this in CA Residential Code "R903.3 Coping: Parapet walls shall be properly coped with noncombustible, weatherproof materials of a width not less than the thickness of the parapet wall". So it appears I do not have to use flat sheet metal coping.
