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.
