BETA PHOTO: blue is sport, red is trad, yellow is TR.


Climb the arete until you reach the top. Pretty straightforward. One of the better sport climbs at the crag.


Bolt ladder to the top. There are two more bolts that are not shown in the beta photo, just below the anchors. Can also be top roped by walking around the back.

I woud say that the crux is a thin smeary section just past the 3rd bolt. Really fun warm-up for this area if you didn't bring your trad rack. Definitely worth checking out if you're a local or on vacation in Oahu. It's definitely cooler than the Polynesian Cultural Center.........

I agree on the fun part. Doesn't look like its going to be that good, but it was actually quite memorable for a pretty short climb. The setting doesn't hurt either...

Great climb, found the crux to be the start. There is a thin section after a couple clips but is a great climb.

To make it harder, my buddy and I climbed over the nose most of the way then used the nose as an arete. Done this way, it's more like a 5.9+/5.10- and also a LOT more fun IMO.
