[Hide Comment] I am headed to the Big Island on Saturday for two weeks with not much planned, but I am bringing the entirety of my sport climbing gear. Based on Mountain Project, I don't expect to find much at all, but I am hopeful. I am not bringing any trad gear, but plenty of gear to set up a top rope if I find something. If anyone has any information, please share! I will update this comment throughout the trip. Jun 25, 2015
