Rock climbing photos in Hawaii at Manifest, Honolulu, Oahu.

This is the Unreal Hawaii photo exhibition at Manifest. The exhibition dates are from October 19 through November 17, 2012.

Bouldering in Hawaii

The title of the exhibition is “Bouldering in Hawaii.”

A photo exhibition for Hawaii rock climbing.

The Unreal Hawaii photo exhibition at Manifest, Honolulu.

There are 21 photos in all.

I recently partnered with Justin Ridgely (owner of Volcanic Rock Gym) to produce this photo exhibition. The goal of the exhibition is to expose the sport of bouldering to some people that might not have heard of it before.

Most of the photos were shot specifically for this exhibition. Some were from my archives.

If you are around Downtown Honolulu sometime before November 17, drop by and have a look. Manifest is located at 32 North Hotel Street. During the day they have excellent coffee. If going for pau hana (happy hour), they have a tasty cocktail menu.

When you first walk in look to your left to read what the exhibition is all about.

Look up and you’ll see some crash pads.

Crash pads, a chalk bag and shoes are all you need to boulder. At first I was worried that Justin’s shoes might get stolen. But then I smelled them. No need worry.

We managed to fill up this huge brick wall with photos.

Justin brought in “The Spore” from the rock climbing gym to hang on the wall. This thing is normally mounted on to wall at the gym.

If you enjoy photos of shirtless dudes, this is the photo exhibition for you.

When you’re done checking out photos, you can grab a seat at the bar and have a drink.

Or chill on the couch.

During the day you might find a friendly dog lying around.

Thanks so much to everyone that helped make it happen.
