Summary

Remote sea stack climbing

Description

A 552 m high volcanic sea stack

Access issues

A world heritage area, climbing is only permitted since 1986 for scientific purposes. Strict bio security measures are essential to preserve the unique flora and fauna on this seamount which includes dryococelus australis and other invertebrates once common on LHI, but now endangered, largely due to rat predation on Lord Howe. Other threats to this ecosystem include morning glory infestation at lower levels.
