Fangatave Beach Whale Wall

Follow the crack/flake arete, with jugs all around. Really nice climb

19 Thirty Four (years) (Thirty Four (years) P1)

Sort of a boulder-y start but super easy with grippy jugs. Goes left onto the face and then traverse right. Nice ledges to rest on along the way. If you don't have a nice jug, just keep moving and you will find one

Fangatave Beach Anokula Wall
18 22 Purple Pincer Pocket Puller (Purple Pincer Pocket Puller P1)

Easy fun flake at the start, followed by slight overhang sustained to anchors (past the tree branch brushing the rock). There is a full body jam just before the pumpy part for a hands-free rest and plenty of juggy pockets though. A bit slopey pulling up to anchor but hidden pockets. Beautiful long, fun climb! ♡

Northwestern Beach crags Olu sea cliff
19 the Muppet Show

I was a bit too scared at the start with the sharp overhung rock above more sharp rock - really afraid to fall! After that, with a nice rest in a cave ledge, a smooth jug traverse to a crack and stem, followed by fun crimp slab with a hidden jug by the tree jutting out from the rock, and then easy as to finish in a HUGE cave at the anchor!

Fangatave Beach Whale Wall
16 Whale Access Pitch

Fun little route up a squeeze chimney if you want and onto a nice juggy arete to a grassy ledge with a big cave and lovely sea view just before the anchor
