Hawaii Climbing Access Effort Hits a Roadblock

Last week the legislative effort to re-open Oahu’s state lands to climbing hit a roadblock. Our two remaining bills (SB 1168 & SB 1007) died when the House Judicial Committee refused to schedule a hearing. Despite this setback, the Department of Land and Natural Resources and the Attorney General appreciated our effort and are willing to consider alternate means for addressing liability concerns. Climb Aloha and the Access Fund are continuing to work with the State to find a solution. Although this was unfortunate, the fight is far from over. Stayed tuned for the latest news.

Interesting issue, it would be nice to read or see links to more information. There exists okay yet unsafe basalt climbs on Oahu, and every local knows that access is very limited to state lands, for a multitude of complicated reasons singularly unique to Hawaii poitics and cuture, along with the need to protect extremely delicate watershed areas. Keep up the good work, good luck with DLNR lol...
