Ship Rock

(13 routes)

A good collection of sport routes on pretty good greywacke, on the southern and eastern sides of the rock. Back in the 1980s, there was a stranded fishing boat stuck next to the rock – and old rusty cables can still be seen nearby, relics from the wreck and salvage of the Pacific Charger freighter, which ran aground in May 1981.

Access: 

Walk to Baring Head, and continue around the coast another 200 metres or so. It's the very large rock just right of the track.
