That section of the ICW, from Little River almost all the way to the Waccamaw is a pain, especially when you do meet a barge. From my days there, most used to issue a warning at either end so you would know they were coming.
It's a good practice to hail on 16 prior to entering the Rockpile to avoid any oncoming traffic regardless of the size, because once you are in there, turning around may be an option you regret. I suggest putting it in reverse!
