4 out of 5 stars Maui's offering to the wannabe deep water soloists like me

This is a very simple climb but very, very fun if you factor in all the rewards. Let me explain. First you swim out to the face through one of the best snorkeling spots on the island. When your deep enough, slip on your rock shoes. Bring some goggles to spot the sea turtles and fish on the way to the face. Then grab on and climb up. It's about 20 feet maybe of V0-V1 climbing. Some very slightly overhung spots. You can make it harder for yourself by skipping the obvious holds. You will have an audience by the way because it's such a popular snorkle destination and the Sheraton hotel guests will be tanning on the beach. Then when you get to the top, you look down and make sure turtles are travelling underneath you...then you jump....yeahhhhhhh....SPLASH. Total fun. And some times its just fun to climb half way up and "slip off" on purpose. The only sure bet of climbing on the island. I found a couple other hidden boulders but this one is the easiest to approach. Park at the Whaler's Cove shopping center (between the Sheraton and the Westin hotels) in Ka'anapali and walk the beach path to the rock.
