Hey I'm gonna be on the big island July 3 thru the 10th and would love to hook up with someone that knows the area for a day or so. I have experience climbing. I've done it for years but haven't done it in abut 2 years.  I want to toprope but don't want to take my gear on an airplane.  If any body could meet up or tell me where I could at least rent equipment that would be awesome.

Is there even any roped climbing on the big island?

Most of the established climbing in Hawaii is located on Oahu and Maui. Oahu has about 150 sport and trad climbs and about 250 boulder problems. Maui has about 50 sport climbs and a few bouldering areas. Climbing on Maui is still somewhat new, but the developers have been hard at work establishing new lines monthly.

The other islands have limited to no established climbing."

There is nothing worth bringing your gear for on the BI. You could maybe bring some shoes and deep water solo at South Point, but that's about it. Dont go out there if you're not a strong swimmer and even then there is still a risk of getting injured on the rocks from the ocean surge.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
