Mount Olomana

Hawaii > Oahu > Windward
Summary
Length5 mi
Elev. Gain1300 ft
Difficulty4 / 5
Rating9 / 10
TypeView
The Mount Olomana hike is a truly challenging trail, which should be attempted only by the fittest hikers. The narrow and rocky pathways, the crumbly and steep ascent and the windswept ridgeline is very challenging and must be attempted by hikers who have an excellent physical fitness. For local hikers, covering all the three peaks of Mount Olomana is a kind of graduation that bespeaks their level of skill.

The climb starts with a canopy and a somewhat steep hike, after which the path gets more difficult. You will soon reach the near-vertical rock line, which you will have to navigate with the help of three climbing ropes. After another steep rise, there is a 15-foot rock face. Armature hikers must turn around from this point.

The second peak rises steeply along a crumbly path the drop is even steeper. The third peak is the most dangerous and you will have to evaluate the available path to the peak. A direct climb will leave you at the mercy of the winds. You will discover narrow paths that may have already been roped. Though the true summit is not very spectacular, the challenge that you overcome is worth it.
