Description 

This is a big boulder with the side facing the road dominated by a 15" tall, dead vertical face.


Getting There 

Park at the teal treatment plant, and follow the trail up about 5 minutes. Wander right through the forest to a pretty big boulder. On the side facing back down toward the treatment house is a 15 foot tall vertical face with a perfectly flat landing. This is Moai, AKA Tall Face.

Found a boulder that fits the description of this one except the tall "15" foot face is facing away from the treatment plant not towards it. The route Maui looks like no one has done it in a decade. If I'm missing the boulder, let me know, because 1 minute behind this boulder is a boulder with a cave and what looks like a route going out to a finger crack. It looks clean enough that someone only ever did it once though. Kind of hard to find these from the directions provided also. I don't know how long it takes you to hike, but from Moai to Flat Anger, it is like a 15 second walk behind the boulder. Pictures of the rocks would be pretty helpful.
