Fun climbing up massive tufa, flowstone and stalactites to a high crux.

Pitch 1: Near the base of large tree, climb broken looking rock until you’re above the canopy, then pinch your way up the lovely rock and flowstone above to belay below a large stalactite.

Pitch 2: Taking care not to snap off the stalactite that threatens to impale the belayer, either clip an extendable draw or sling something to gain easier terrain and a good rest, before pulling through a series of pockets, finally moving right to clip the chains from a fin of flowstone.

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.
