Ascent Trip Report

Total round trip was 6 miles but last 1.5 miles was basically straight up with an obstacle course of tree roots in the steep jungle forest. Hot and humid. 4200 feet of gain. Guide is required as per government regulations but is all on trail. Some people hike it in 2 days with campsite at Phase 1 then the extreme steepness starts from there! Trailhead is at an elementary school surrounded by Dole plantation of pineapples. Took motorcycle to trailhead with 4 people on it the way down! Local dog followed us as well.
