Description 

Shipwreck 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 There 

In 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.

The shiny top anchors can be seen from below on the highest section of sandstone above the center-right section of the black slab.The first section heads up a slabby face for a few bolts and a 5.10bish move after the first bolt. Climbing is simple until the crux, which is getting yourself through a diagonal crack system and over the bu...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
