Description Suggest change

This is the "regular" route to the top of the Moai, and makes for an excellent adventure. Generally done in two pitches, this route can easily be done in one with a little regard to rope drag. The first pitch is an easy scramble to the top of the big ledge on the NE corner of the tower. From this ledge, continue up highly featured rock past a bolt via a flake system to the summit. One 50m rope is sufficient to rap down.

This route is graded 17/18. I'm too lazy to figure out what that means in YDS.

Location Suggest change

N side of the Moai.

Protection Suggest change

Gear to 3 inches, and carrot hangers. Fixed rap anchor on the summit.
