The majority of climbing on Oahu is sport climbing and bouldering. The Mokuleia Wall hosts Hawaii's largest crag with nearly 55 routes on one wall, and The Arch hosts Hawaii's largest bouldering area. Most other bouldering areas are spread around the island. Makapu'u is a good option for brand new climbers or those looking for short, easy routes. All crags on Oahu offer a 365-day per year climbing season. The climbing at Mokuleia Wall is probably better than you think, and good enough to have had routes featured in a few major climbing magazines over the years.

This is the route to the right of Fusion. It shares the same first bolt as Fusion. Right off the ground, encounter technical and delicate stemming. Encounter a challenging clip at the second bolt (make sure your belayer is on it), then pull the lower crux right after the second bolt. The lower crux involves thin and delicate smearing and stemming with a fun palming move. Continue on sustained terrain until you reach the roof where you can grab a rest on a jug. Then continue up and over the overh...[more] Browse More Classics in Hawaii

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 completely.
The cracks here can be dangerous to lead on... The rock inside the cracks can be very brittle, so traditional pro can break the rock if you take a lead fall. that is why a lot of the cracks here might have bolts next to them.
