Description 

The Shipwreck wall is the prominent East face that lies perpendicular to the river on the East ship. It's home to a handful of decent and moderate single-pitch routes.

Also included in this area is the River Face which, as the name implies, is the face just down and around the corner from the Shipwreck wall facing the river.

Getting There 

From the bridge walk left along the main path around the dark Shiprock. The Shipwreck Wall is the prominent face on the East Ship outcrop.
