The climbing is amazing (with all due respect to the poster who said it was uninspiring). I climbed the longest sport route in North America; Time Wave Zero. At 23 pitches (21st pitch a stinger of a 12a), the climbing was varied, fun and LONG.

I'm definitely in the minority, as most folks there liked it. But I'd describe the multipitch routes as repetitive, boring and LONG. Mostly lower angle ladders with a bolt every 10 feet and anchors every 100. The multis there felt like low quality trad routes to me.

The cragging was better, but nowhere near world class. If you're a 5.10 sport climber it might be a better area for you than if you are a 5.12 sport climber.
No place (in the northern hemisphere) is going to be guaranteed to be warm and dry.
Hawaii is guaranteed to be warm. Average low in the winter is 65 - 70. The coldest it’s ever been in the entire history of Honolulu is 53. Dry though... No. Anyway I wouldn’t come here to climb unless you had other motives. We have quality climbing that will keep you busy for maybe 30 days but after that you will be either projecting beyond your limit or you will be climbing the same things.
