Waimea Bay offers bouldering in a beautiful beach setting. Most come to the area to relax on the beach, Jump "da big rock", surf the waves, or hike the short nature trails up to Waimea Falls. The rock is hard, and offers a diversity of holds and climbing styles, which range from V0 to V7. Generally speaking, climbers do not require a crash pad as the beach sand provides sufficient protection. However, at times the sand might be low requiring climbers to use pads. Also, always check the landing below you before getting on the problem to ensure there are no hidden rocks in the sand or other objects. For more information visit:

Getting There 

Located off of 83, North Shore O'ahu. Nearest major town: Haleiwa. Once parked and facing the ocean, walk left (SW) across the beach about 100 meters. Parking can be difficult to find on the weekend and state holidays, so expect to spend some time looking for it if visiting on one of these days.

Tyrannosaurus Rex aka T-Rex V5-6 6C+  Hawaii : Oahu : Waimea Bay Bouldering
The Waimea classic! Climbs up the most prominent roof on the beach. Start low on two opposing flat shelves and move straight up on jugs up to the roof. Then pull over on some small and pretty bad crimps and then make the crux move up to a small, sharp, diagonal pocket. From the pocket move up and left to a jug and finish with an easy topout. The crux may also be finding a time when there aren't tourists seeking shade under the route. T-Rex Direct is a V7 variation that stays off the left arete a...[more]   Browse More Classics in Hawaii
