Nice views  Sucess!

Short, easy hike from the visitor's center. Very crowded, but worth it once for the 360 views. New benchmark was placed in 2002. Interesting historical site, too.

Bees  Sucess!

Nice quick hike up. Bees decided on a nest site next to the trail (I'm talking on a branch within a foot of the narrow trail) and were swarming when we descended. After trying to stay calm and walking through the swarm, the trail switched back and we had to walk through them again. Inner harmony worked and neither Heidi nor I got stung.

Tourist route  Sucess!

Walked from hotel in Waikiki after flying in that day. First time up in about 30 years and only because the rest of the mountains were being pounded by rain.

Lovely  Sucess!

Nice early wander up to the top. Some interesting info signs at the beginning. Would be nice if more of the site was accessible.

Diamond Head  Sucess!

Got a big kick out of all the people gasping, whining, and moaning as if this was the most difficult thing they had ever done.

Tourist Visit  Sucess!

Don't remember exactly when but it was early 90's. Flashlights are good. I got too friendly with a Japanese tourist in the long dark tunnel and I don't know what she said but she wasn't happy.

Hiked up with Ezra Dancio and Matt Thielman. Windy at the top even at 9AM. Cool views of Waikiki and cliffs below.

I think it took 20 minutes from the bus stop. But the views were awesome.

Climbing in Paradise  Sucess!

Round trip from the condo in Waikiki was about two and half to three hours. Walked up to the gate, paid my one dollar admission, went to the top, and descended. Easy trail for anyone on summitpost, but this is probably the best vantage point of Honolulu. Enjoy!
