Ball's Pyramid is a sea stack, a great jagged spire rising straight from the Tasman Sea. Its steep, eroded base, roughly 650 feet across, is battered by the rugged sea, making the approach a serious challenge. It is located off the southeast shores of Lord Howe Island, over 400 miles northeast of Sydney, Australia. Lord Howe Island has a spectacular landscape with the volcanic mountains of Mount Gower and Mount Lidgbird looming over the island. Ball's Pyramid is one of many sea stacks off shore, the eroded remains of what once were much larger volcanoes.
