Shipwreck Rock is the chunk of rock, visible from the observation point, that slid from the canyon rim down into the river. The face is seasonally submerged at the base making it impossible to climb on when the river is high, approximately May to June depending on the snow pack. This wall holds what many consider the best rock in the canyon and is home to many excellent 5.12s.
From the Foyer walk downhill towards the river following a faint trail towards the giant roof, once at the riverbed turn right walk down river 100 feet to the impressive blue and yellow streaked wall. Boulder hoping may be required depending on water level. The 2 upriver most routes are always accessible even when the river is high.
