Summary

The Kingdom of Tonga, in the South Pacific ocean, consists of 169 islands, of which 36 are inhabited. The island of Eua has a rapidly growing sport climbing scene which began in 2016.

Description

For more information on the climbing on Eua and guidebook, please visit http://tonganrock.org/

Access issues

The majority of climbing is on the King’s estate and access is a privilege granted by the King’s Office, not a right. An access arrangement has been negotiated but could be withdrawn at any time by the King’s Office.

Before climbing on ‘Eua, all visitors must agree to the Disclaimer (http://tonganrock.azurewebsites.net/climbing/climbers-registration/) and pay a land management levy of T$20.

You must also agree to abide by the Climber’s Code of Conduct (http://www.tonganrock.org/climbing/climbers-code-of-conduct/).

Approach

The beautiful island of ‘Eua is just a 10 minute flight or 3 hour ferry from Nuku’alofa, which itself is just 3 or 4 1/2 hours flight from Auckland or Sydney respectively. Alternatively, you can fly to Nuku’alofa from Fiji or Samoa.

Where to stay

There are four main accommodation places:

  • Ovava Tree Lodge has eight units, there is also a small area where camping may also be possible and you can use their kitchen for a fee.
  • Hideaway Resort has around twelve rooms.
  • Taina’s Place has bungalows and a campsite.
  • Deep Resort which has four units.

Ethic

All bolts are titanium 110mm x 10mm glue in P-style ring bolts. The resin used in 2016 and 2017 was Hilti HIT-HY 200 R.
