Access issues inherited from Tonga
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 An access arrangement has been negotiated but could be withdrawn at any time by the King’s Office.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/).
To access the crag get dropped off at the water tanks, then walk north across farm land, closing two gates behind you, to locate the beach track which starts at the north end of the cliff line (15 mins). Descend the rough track to the beach then wander back south towards the cliffs. About 50 metres after the sand ends some fishing buoys can be seen hanging on the rock, marking the start of the access route up to the crag (20 mins). Scramble up the rock terrace and follow the buoys through a cave and forest to the crag (10 mins from beach). The point at which you arrive at the crag is known as the “Whale Wall”.
Ethic inherited from Eua
To ensure climbers can enjoy this special place it is critical that climbing is supported by the local community. To help achieve this the Kaka Maka Group has been formed as a partnership between climbers, the Kings Office and the Eua Tourism Association. The Kaka Maka Group is working with locals to develop ‘Eua as an international climbing destination and is the central point of contact for all climbing related queries and issues.
