Hi Harrison- looks like you're having fun over there! What's the spread of
Climbing ratings & how many routes? Kauai is already somewhere I want to visit.
There was recently an article in Bike mag. about mountain biking there, looked great! I'd love to hear more about the climbs. Thanks!
Still can't load up photos????? May have to wait until the mainland.
Kurt the bouldering/climbing at glass beach is As hard as you want. The Limestone is 5.9-10+. Both of these are in the Poipu area. Mitches routes are 5.8 and 5.10 offwidth trad. He has put up a couple top rope anchors on these. The unknown route probably the 11.b mentioned is bolted. These are in the Wiamea area.
I was just in the northern end of the island on the Kalalua trail. Seems like there is a ton of potential there too.
Kauai has a ton of cool things to do. If your headed that way let me know and I can get you in touch with my bud. He'd be happy to show you around.
How big is the climbing community out there in Kauai? I will be out there second week of January, and I would like to link up with some locals who could show me around. I mostly boulder, but I dabble in a little of everything.
Hey Jim, hope yer good. If you see Jay say hey from me.....ask about the piton he bought a few years back at an auction. When bidding closed and it was his, he turned to me and said,”what the phuck did I just do?” We got a good laugh out of it!
