Description

Sector starts 40m south of the water pipe and extends to chossy wall with huge slabby open book hanging corner which starts at half height.

Access issues inherited from Eua

Before climbing on ‘Eua, all climbers must register at Ovava Tree Lodge. During registration climbers must agree to the Disclaimer and the Climber’s Code of Conduct. There is a T$20 climbers registration fee and an admin fee of T$5. This is a one off payment per trip.

Please remember that climbing is on the Kings estate and access is a privilege granted by the Kings Office, not a right. We are guests on their land - please act accordingly.

Approach

Walk south from Anokula past water pipe.

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 to develop ‘Eua as an international climbing destination.

Starts on a ledge in an open cave. P1 is steep and juggy. See if you can find the good holds before you pump out! There is a free purple Black Diamond nut for whoever can dislodge it. Head out left to continue upwards. Double bolt belay immediately after you gain the headwall. P2: Keep climbing up and you'll eventually reach the top.

P1. Start up beautifully featured stalactites, columns and flowstone and continue up face before trending right to belay in cave. Extending 3rd RB recommended. P2. Head through stalactites and continue up face trending right to belay in cave.

Descent: Single 30m abseil/rap to ground.

Climbs the obvious hanging curtain of stalactites. Start by climbing unprotected up past the brain to a belay which will help decrease drag. out right and up the ramp to the first bolt and access to the first of the flow. Use a double draw on the fourth bolt (inside the room with no floor) for optimal rope running. The harder climbing begins as you exit out the window and find your way up the final overhangs on great full hand pockets to finish at the base of the headwall. (name changed from Enlightenment)

P1. 19 - Start up a series of ledges and bulges tackled direct to belay at cave and ledge. P2. 20 - Head left from belay clipping hidden 2nd RB after 4m. Continue up beautifully coloured pocketed face and finish steeply up crack and pockets to belay at ledge and cave. A 3* pitch. P3. 20 - Head left from belay through small roof into some sharpish rock and precarious moves to small alcove and ledge. Continue up right side past RB to an exciting finish clipping the chains.

Can be linked to make a great 2-pitch or single megapitch route.

Descent: It is possible to abseil/rap off from the top anchors with a 60m rope perfectly centralised with stretch. Use tree at bottom to push yourself into ledge at base if not quite down!
