I am getting married this Saturday and the honeymoon will be in Oahu, Hawaii. My fiance and I enjoy all types of climbing, and would like to climb while we are on the island. Any advise to the best climbing areas, topos you may have, and gear beta would be appreciated! Thomas Skinner

Be advised that the two main climbing areas in Oahu (Mokuleia and Makapuu) have been officially closed since last year, after a young girl was seriously hurt in Mokuleia when a large rock fell on her.

The Department of Land and Natural Resources freaked out over liability issues (these areas belong to the state) and closed the two main climbing areas. It is my understanding that there is an ongoing effort to reverse this, and I think the wheels are in motion, but not sure when (or if)it will happen.

Bouldering, however, in some of the beach areas (in particular Waimea Bay, 21.638635 -158.065911) is not affected by the above, so at least you got that. unrealhawaii.com/2010/06/bould...
