Comments: Unfortunately, I owned the car and had to replace it out of my own pocket.

Comments: 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...

Comments: A very fun, well protected route. If you not comfortable leading at this grade, then definitely try it on top rope.

Comments: This route is to the far right when you reach the wall. Posted a pic to help reference the route.

Comments: Oahu should be split between the Mokuleia Wall, Makapu'u Point and Waimea Bay.

Also almost all of the routes at the Mokuleia Wall have strings that run like top ropes through the anchors. These strings are used to pull your rope though the anchors so that each route may be top roped. If a string breaks or you want to lead the route, make sure you try and put the string back up. Another reason that these strings are here is because the top of the cliff is very crumbly, please do not top out comp... more >>

Comments: Fun route, but be careful. Some of the rock on this route doesn't seem too secure.

Comments: I think this can be a fun route to lead if your in the mood to work on harder Splat friction climbing. Aim left after the crack, then go to the right edge after the tree for a full, friction experience.

Comments: Yea, I wish I had the lack of fear as the first ascentionist on this route. It was scary. Be aware of the loose flake between 2nd and third bolt to climber's left.

Comments: Another fun route on the Bucksnort slabs. Start of the route in winter can be very interesting though, seeing as there has been ice for about the first 8 feet of the line. Start can also be wet in the summer but it isn't really a problem.


11/30/09 -- Did the left variation, definitely harder and sketchier than the right. Think it is .9+ - .10-. Piton right above what I thought was the crux. Pink tri-cam protects the crux well.

Comments: This is a route well worth doing. The crux [I think] is definitely near the top where the crack flares to the right. But definitely a 5.7.

Comments: A classic Bucksnort crack. Excellent pro, good position. I don't see the reason in splitting hairs between .9+ and .10-. It just has some interesting moves on it. Well worth doing!!

Comments: A very psychological route in my opinion. Has a great crux move. The route doesn't climb as you think but it works great with your feet on the top of the crack...(getting pro in is interesting). A worthwhile climb. Definitely not for someone just breaking into 5.9 climbing.

Comments: Thanks bro.... Yes, I am indeed in love with Ragger Bagger. The offwidth section of this climb makes the route very worth doing. But it is really really hard to do at night with only a headlamp.... Twin cracks prior to crux are genius. Very worthwhile route!

Comments: One of the best lines at Squat, very worth doing. It would be nice if the crack at the beginning was about 100 feet longer though :-)

Comments: This is a fun route. Wouldn't call it 5.10b but maybe .10a. [Definitely] a route worth doing.

Comments: I liked this route but the rope drag can be crappy. The route actually doesn't take the flake to the left but continues up through a .10b offwidth. The flake to the left is called Di's Escape. But which ever way you choose it is still a good route.
