We are partnering, supporting and amplifying the O'ahu Water Protectors, an organization of community organizers and concerned community members fighting for safe, clean water. As climbers and outdoor enthusiasts we need to be at the forefront of advocating for a healthy ecosystem and supporting the larger community.

Aloha, we are hosting a Kānaka Night at @hiclimbhawaii every third Saturday of the month @7pm.
The purpose is to Talk Story about the history of climbing in Hawai'i and the many traditions passed down from generation to generation surrounding climbing. We will also have a chance to update you on projects and answer any questions about today’s outdoor climbing, how to do it respectfully, land laws and access issues. And of course have time to climb!
DM our instagram to RSVP or at the front desk of HiClimb. DM for financial assistance.
ACCESS FUND CLIMBING CONSERVATION GRANT PROGRAM
MAHALO FOR YOUR SUPPORT! WE RECEIVED THE GRANT!!!!
Mahalo for your support!
We received the Access Fund Grant for our climbing pilot program/partnership with the state parks!
Kānaka Climbers was awarded funding to help conduct an archaeological inventory to determine the location of cultural resources and maintain and mitigate damages to those cultural sites near climbing areas. The hope is to create a better relationship with the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), state land managers, and the local community.
Climbing is still not a recognized and fully legal sport in all areas of Hawaiʻi. Our Pilot program within the Town Boulders space is our chance for the climbing community to work with the state of Hawaiʻi to create a climbing management plan. Our management plans are aimed at protecting and preserving cultural resources such as historical trails, petroglyphs and agricultural dry stacked walls while opening access to boulders that are deemed appropriate for climbing. The goal is to assist with a plan for responsible recreation while protecting the cultural resources within the State Park.
