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


Less-than-vertical. Slopers and the arete for hands, smears for feet.
The route starts just below the obvious arete right in the center of the wall, just to the right of Overhanging One and Stemming Route. Follow the bolts up the right-hand side and to the top. Fairly straight forward.


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.
