Description

Quite possibly the single most popular route in Hawaii. It's right at the base of the main trail. Pull on fun but pumpy crack moves down low through the first three bolts, then hit a massive ledge. Clip the 4th bolt and fire straight onto the arete. Do not continue up left after the ledge and do not flip on the right side of the arete. The route follows right up the middle of the arete on the face.

Protection

Sport - 6 bolts.

Fun climb. Plenty of variety, with some good solid holds. Had fun with this one. It felt a little harder than it's rated, but very good and fun. A lot of these climbs on this wall require some stemming, which I don't have a lot of experience or confidence in, but it gets you up and it's fun to do. Sep 21, 2009
Pig Tree looks easier than it is. Key is to get to the fin (covered in chalk, in the middle of the pic)....once you are there, you are golden.

One thing to mention......the North Shore views are awesome and worth the steep hike alone.

Stop by a shrimp truck on your way out to make it a perfect day. Dec 13, 2010

Would definitely agree that this route looks easier than it is. My first route I climbed here. A great start to climbing at the Moke... Feb 25, 2011

Agree with great lakes. Many of the start and first few bolts are tricky on the Mokes. Be a good 5.10 leader to clim this. Dec 24, 2015

^^^I dont know why you need to be a 5.10 leader to climb a 5.8...?

Anyway, if you're leading pay attention to what you're doing. I saw some girl get to the ledge and start climbing left, 15' away form the bolts. By the time she realized she was off route she was 20' above her last bolt and looking at a pretty serious situation. If you cant reach the bolts you're obviously not on route. The chalk doesent always lend the correct path but the bolts always will. May 16, 2017
