Date Climbed: Nov 10, 2016


On way up I mentioned to Heidi that it was good it wasn't raining because it looked like the route would be really slick if wet. It started raining on top of the 1st peak. It was really slick on the way down -- like no way to not fall a couple of times slick. It is a beautiful climb.

This is a brief but challenging hike. I'd recommend against this hike if you have any fear of heights or if you do not like exposure. Some basic technical climbing is preferable even though it isn't necessary. The big reason is that you have some easy vertical climbs of 10-20 feet, but making an error is very costly. I made the first summit, but stopped there. Wonderful views.

It had rained the night before and the trail was really muddy and slick. I only went to the summit of the first peak. I really enjoyed this hike. Lush, green, ocean...what more could you want?

An enjoyable scramble to all three summits in the early morning. Trip Report.

Awesome hike, great views, surprisingly technical towards the top. Definitely not for the average day hiker.

A fun, quick excursion while attending the AAI meeting in Honolulu. Great scrambling and views near the top!

Excellent day hike! Didn't get to do the other two peaks but plan to do them soon! I didn't think it was as hard as alot of people made it out to be. No 4 or 5 hour hike! More like 2 or 3. Still had fun when it came to the rock climbing part! Excellent trip!

LeviCouldn't pass this one up!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 13, 2011


I had to make this summit before our vacation was over. My buddy and I planned on going to the first summit and calling it a day. Once we got to the top I couldn't resist the lure of the other two. My friend headed down and waited for me. The views were spectacular on all three peaks and the third summit is definitely worth the time! Took about 50 min to summit and then another 30 min to reach the third peak. Great trip and amazing hike! Now they just have to open up the Haiku Stairs...

The most fantastic hike in Oahu. Overlooking Kailua bay, you get to scramble up clay, root, and then narrow rock blade. Some ropes are in place as well for help up and easy rappel.

Ran up from the golf course with a few guys (BYU-Hawaii Cross Country team) on a nice day that got stormy on us. Did all three summits which were awesome and got some incredible pictures. The views are unbelievable and the trail is as fun as they come in my opinion. Booked it down off the mountain as the storm started to rage.

I just keep coming back to this mountain over and over again. The third peak is well worth it if you are not intimidated by heights.

I forget the exact date. Flying into Oahu for a conference, this peak called out to be climbed. I was happy to find that there was an established (and as it turns out quite exciting) route to the top.

Beautiful climb up the standard route. The clay and rocky class 3 sections were interesting. The summit is amazing, didn't make it to the other two summits.

What a fun climb! The views were just amazing. Dry conditions made the trail and the rock sections easier. Did not traverse to the third summit because of time constraints.

Fun! This short, steep climb is definitely a highlight on Oahu. Highly recommended. The difficulty keeps the tourists away. The scrambling was really enjoyable.

What an awesome postcard view of Oahu! I badgered a friend to follow me up this spine of a mountain and we made the first peak to find winds gusting around 17mph. Trail was fairly slick since the couple of weeks' worth of rain hadn't soak in yet but the rock scrambling went well considering in some sections if you slip you will definitely have a quick trip straight down! Slight fear factor for the inexperienced. A very beautiful hike.

This was only the fourth hike I've done with my brother Norm in the past 10 years or so. The other three were the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu (a nice adventure), Katahdin, and the Beehive Trail at Acadia. On Katahdin, we turned around when we ran into 60 mph winds on an exposed class 3 ridge (and then drove to Bar Harbor to eat lobster). This time, we didn't have any wind, but my brother was giving me that "are you crazy" look again when he saw the class 3 rock and the rope just below the summit. We made it up to the first/highest summit but didn't continue to the second and third peaks due to a late start and the rain. After returning to Honolulu for a much needed shower and change of clothes, we headed out to Todai for an awesome all-you-can-eat Japanese buffet - lots of sushi and everything else!
