Description

A huge arch formation on the west side of Oahu. The Arch is a large, overhung arch-shaped formation that is home to some of the best bouldering on the island. The Arch is only climbable during low tide (Spring through Fall) and when it has not rained on the west side of the island. Do not climb there if it has rained as you may break holds off. The Arch can stay damp for many days as the holds do not receive much exposure from the sun. If you choose to climb there, you must bring multiple pads with a few spotters. For more information visit: boulderinghawaii.com/the-arch/

Getting There

On your own, take H1 West (Ewa-bound) and continue driving until the end of the road. Once you arrive in the park at Kaena Point, hike Kaena Point for 20-25 mins. The Arch is located on the coastline, down and to your left.

There are 2 different parking areas called Kaena point! Make sure you park on the one closer south west! If you don't then it is an hour and a half walk, not 20 minutes! I made this mistake on my last day of the trip and didn't have enough time once I realized the mistake was made Jan 17, 2017
