Description [Suggest Change]

The Moai is an impressive, though little-known sea-stack on the north head of Fortescue Bay. Featuring several excellent routes, the Moai is far more mellow than other Tasman Peninsula sea stacks. This is the perfect warm-up climb for more challenging adventures.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

From the Fortescue Bay Beach, head north and gain the trail to Waterfall Bay. After about an hour, Bivouac Bay is reached. Continue another 10-15 minutes, where the trail turns sharply North. Look for a climber's trail marked by a cairn, and follow this east for about 100yds to the cliff's edge. A series of rappels (do-able with one 60m rope) reach a broad rock pedestal 10 feet above the Tasman Sea. If you haven't noticed the Moai by now, you're in the wrong place!
