Description

Sharks Fin is the large rock formation just to the right of Shipyard Rock. It used to have just 2 routes, both of which were fairly runout. Now, there have been some new additions and retro-bolted routes.
Check NPS for Closures Details

Getting There

Walk to the sign-in at the old road in South Seas. Sharks Fin is just to the right of the two large rock formations that are straight ahead. Walk right on the road for a short bit, then follow a trail that contours the rock around to the other side. Here is where the climbing is.

Does anyone know what the route is on the far left side of Shark's fin? It is well bolted and the start looks very moderate (5.6). However, I could not see past the 6th bolt so I don't know where it goes or what the route is like past there. Jul 12, 2007
