We will be spending a week in Hawaii in early September, renting a house on the North Shore at Sunset Beach. We were not planning on bringing climbing gear, but looks like we will be quite close to the Moke area, so I wondered if anyone could give me some advice so we can think whether to throw our stuff in.
1. Grades - we are wimps, even for sport climbing we need under 5.10 and nice close bolts - is there much in that range.
2. Access - the approach was described as steep and uphill, um, so I guess not good for stroller, 1 yr old baby and elderly grandparents??!
3. We might be able to pursuade grandparents to babysit for a few hours (but unlikely for a full day), can we drive there from Sunset beach, hike in, climb and be back in a few hours?
4. Will our rental car get trashed in the parking area?
5. Is there a guidebook?
Thanks for any replies. Hopeflly USNavy will see this...

Brilliant, exactly the sort of details we needed. I think we'll throw a rope, shoes, harnesses and our draws in and see if we can visit.
Thanks for replying!
