The Whale Wall is the first wall you come to when you walk up from the beach access track, approximately in the centre of the wall is lump of rock shaped like a hounds head. The crag is around 70m high, the limestone is compact, smooth, steep and well featured. All routes stop below the sharp, slabby grey rock and thus do not top out. The routes are described below from right to left, which is the direction you’d walk when arriving at the crag.
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 An access arrangement has been negotiated but could be withdrawn at any time by the King’s Office.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/).
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.
