Route Climbed: The main road Date Climbed: February 1981  Sucess!

I went to Maui with my parents when I was a freshman in high school and this was my fondest memory. Granted we took a tour van up most of the way, but I climbed the remaining distance to the summit. Twenty two years later, I need to keep my promise to take my wife back here. I can still remember the smell of the euchalyptus (spelling?) on the way up.

Route Climbed: The Road Date Climbed: April, 2000  Sucess!

On a family trip to Hawaii, we drove up to the top and walked around a little bit, then biked down all the way to the beach. Fun ride, but would have liked to explore the crater a bit, probably like walking on the moon.

Route Climbed: The Road Date Climbed: Oct, 1991  Sucess!

A group of us got up at 3a and drove to the summit in the dark to witness the renowned "pink sunrise." It was freezing cold before the sun came up (and of course we weren't wearing anything appropriate for the temps), and when it finally did it was a disappointing gray sunrise I wouldn't have minded to miss. The best part though was a several hour hike down into the crater - very cool. Would love to go back and spend a whole day exploring around there.
