Waimea Bay offers bouldering in a beautiful beach setting. Most come to the area to relax on the beach, Jump "da big rock", surf the waves, or hike the short nature trails up to Waimea Falls. The rock is hard, and offers a diversity of holds and climbing styles, which range from very easy to very hard in difficulty. About 25 feet at the highest points it has an easy walk off down stairs, or mellow down climb. There is even a single bolt up there if you wanted to rope up. Don't bother with a crash pad, the sand is deep and soft. However, you may want to bring your car mat to get sand off your shoes before climbing. Even with rain, certain areas stay dry, however, chalk is very helpful to have because it can often be wet from rain. Nearest shop is in Honolulu, so bring all you need.
Located off of 83, North Shore O'ahu. Nearest major town: Haleiwa. Once parked and facing the ocean, walk left (SW) across the beach about 100 meters.

Then pull over on some small and pretty bad crimps and then make the crux move up to a small, sharp, diagonal pocket. From the pocket move up and left to a jug and finish with an easy topout. The crux may also be finding a time when there aren't tourists seeking shade under the route. T-Rex Direct is a V7 variation that stays off the left arete a...[more] Browse More Classics in Hawaii
