Description 

Bora Bora is the leftmost established route on the Tahitian Rocks wall. It is to the right and uphill from most of the other routes. It starts in a gully which separtes the upper and lower portions of this rock.

Climb up ricey rock through 7 bolts to a set of chain anchors. Several moves of 5.9 are found in the middle of the route. The climbing is a little ricey, which detracts from the overall quality, but hopefully this will improve with time. A one rope rap with a 60m gets you down.

Protection 

7 bolts. 2-bolt chain anchor at the top.
