The snout of Hualalai I
Michelle peers with trepidation into Luamakami--the snout of Hualalai. The shaft is dead vertical and you can't see the bottom. It's quite eerie. I threw several rocks down the hole and many seconds passed before the clink of rock on rock could be heard. But did my tossed rocks merely hit the side or did they hit the bottom? I'd say the hole is at least 150 feet deep. March 3, 2007.

And what, pray tell, were you planning on anchoring to for your descent? I wouldn't trust one single boulder on Hualalai. I don't know that I'd anchor to a tree either and there certainly weren't any worthy ones atop Luamakami.

More photos of other Big Island big boys to come. Some of my photos are really HOT.

"Some of my photos are really HOT." - So, some good shots of Michelle, I would hope!? (Not some lame lava pics.)

Luamakami is one nasty loose mess is it not! - and, agreed, anchoring WOULD be a problem.

dusitai think she was way too close

considering how fragile the volcanic rock is, granted, i've probably been bit too close myself, in other areas
