Shaded heavily under the jungle canopy. The 100' wide, 20-30' tall rock is gray, solid, and a little rough. A few loose pieces, but for the most part very strong. Lots of nice cracks and small edges. Very secluded. The stream is running down below the climbs, and a waterfall sets some good background noise. Some vines spider-web across the right hand side of the wall, while the left hand side has multiple overhangs. There are two bolts on the wall for top-roping, while TR's can also be set up at nearly every angle using trees from above.
Drive up 10th Avenue in Palolo Valley, turn right at Waiomao street. Continue uphill on Waiomao until you pass a Buddhist temple on the right. Park in the small parking lot (room for about 5 cars), right up the street past the temple.

Climb the upper slab using little parallel vertical edges for both hands. Wide reaches. Move feet up and then reach for slopers at the top, then top out. ...[more] Browse More Classics in Hawaii
