DescriptionShipwreck Wall is home to a nice selection of difficult, vertical sandstone climbs. The rock is mostly solid, although it gets crumbly near the top of some routes and in any area not yet developed. Routes range from a few short, easier 5.9 to 5.11 climbs to 80' 5.12 fun. Judging by the appearance of recent bolt lines, this wall is still being developed.Shipwreck Wall is in direct sunlight through the whole afternoon. Enjoy the sunset!
Getting ThereIn the following, I'm assuming that the ocean is due west of the Fisk Mill Cove beach.
Shipwreck Wall is located on the northwest side of Sentinel Rock (assuming the ocean is directly west at that point).
Take the northwest trail at the end of the parking lot. Continue past the sign that says Sentinel Rock (that path leads to the observation deck above the climbing areas) and follow the sketchy staircase on your left to the beach. Sentinel Rock is the large sandstone crag on the south end of the beach (on the left). Walk around the rock, clambering across the big beach rocks, to the ocean-facing side. When you see bolts, you've reached Shipwreck Wall.
