At 9 minutes 55 seconds on the Uluwatu video you can see a cliffband. Can anyone who's been there comment on the climbing potential? The upper tier looks interesting.

I just got out of the water after brilliant windless session here in my back yard at Kuau.
Since my last post things around here have turned around!
We were blessed with the first significant swell of the season.
The first day it was just too big for me in my back yard so I went to Kanaha where it was much smaller but it had a fresh onshore breeze that turned those delightful waves into a sloppy mess so I didn't paddle out.
The next day it was still too big at Kuau, so, I went back to Kanaha and scored a glassy over head session with out too many people in the line up. I was only snaked once and that was by a friend.
After that day the size dropped at my place and we have had a wonderful windless period with over head waves.
The wind came back for two days but the mornings were still over head in the sets and glassy.
Here's a few images I took after yesterdays morning session.

Check this footage of Jamie Mitchell at Peahi last January.
This was captured by my friend Greg Huglin who scored a spot on a boat sitting in the channel.

Aloha O-man and all who paddle,
I came across this thread on oc paddler as a tribute to the late Maui man Rick Nuu. There is a foto of him paddling at peahi in an oc1. That's pretty wild, know anything about that ?

Aloha Nohea, That is a fine tribute to a great man!
Although I didn't know Rick personally, I am sure that our paths have crossed many times on the waves of Maui. My best wishes to his family and extended ohana!

Good Question...

"At 9 minutes 55 seconds on the Uluwatu video you can see a cliffband. Can anyone who's been there comment on the climbing potential? The upper tier looks interesting."

Been there.
Lots of potential though the quality I think is fairly suspect. Volcanic in nature with super sharp edges that is often breakable and that particular spot may be off limits as there is a temple in the vicinity.

And yes the trash on that side of the island especially in the water is seriously messed up as in their garbage problem in general for the whole island.

Wave season is off to a ripping start here on the north shore of Maui.
We have been literally invaded with wave sailing enthusiasts from every point of the globe. Many are here to compete in the "Aloha Classic" and the rest just be a part of the biggest wave sailing event in history.
The event has taken over Hookipa Beach Park(the birth place of wave sailing)for over two weeks.
With Hookipa dominated by the contest anyone that wants to sail waves has to find another place to sail. The first choice for an alternative spot to sail is my back yard here in Kuau. My home break has been packed with foreign sailors.
I knew this was going to happen so I have been surfing at Noriega's early in the day before the wind comes up and then going down to Hookipa and shooting photos of the action for an article in Maui Ocean Sports Magazine.
My article will be coming out after the event is over.
Check out this link for a detailed account of yesterdays wave sailing action.
