Pohakuluahine Rock Art Site (OA-A7-1)

The Pohakuluahine Rock Art Site is mentioned in Hawaiian Petroglyphs (Cox 1970: 10, 97). The Moanalua stream flows at the foot of the boulder.

Cox (1970:97) reports that the area of the site is called Kahalelauki. Photograph of the boulder with a 30 cm scale (3 segments of 10 cm).

This site was first reported in 1907 (Cox 1970:97).
