Description

Marked by a short, severely overhanging prow (this is where you'll find Minute Man 5.13a). Just around the corner to the right you'll find a fun group of moderate climbs in the 5.8- 5.10 range.

Getting There

Go down the main stairs to the old railroad path (aka Mad River Trail). Turn left and walk down the path for about 100 yards. On the left you'll see the very overhung prow of Ship Rock (Minute Man takes you up the prow). You'll find a set of wooden stairs (with signs for Ship Rock and Mike's Wall) that will take you up to the walls.

The stairs lead to the right side of Mike's Wall. Follow the wall left, walk along the retaining wall, and Ship Rock will start after the crack (left of crack is Ship Rock, right of crack is Mike's Wall). The first route on the right side of Ship Rock is Abandon Ship!
