If you're Kayaking the Wailua River in Kauai and want to try some water-start barefoot bouldering give this place a stop.

Rock is basalt so it's sharp and crumbly. Still fun though.

Getting There 

Kayak up the Wailua River for roughly 4 miles. Where the fork occurs (right going to Wailua Falls) take a left and head down this small offshoot for roughly another half mile. Short (15ft) wall will be on your left as you reach a wide spot in the river.

Climbing Season

Starts in the water. Muscle up off slimy feet to a good but sharp left foot and OK hands. Climb continues up the center area of the short wall on decent but sharp holds. Pull the slopey top to the ledge.Rock is sharp and some holds are loose....[more]   Browse More Classics in Hawaii
