Ascent to Kuiki-Haleakala Crater Rim, East (Top of Notch Trail) on 2005-09-07
|Date:||Wednesday, September 7, 2005|
|Ascent Type:||No Summit Goal|
|Point Reached:||Kuiki - Haleakala Crater Rim, East (Top of Notch Trail)|
| Elevation:||7000 ft / 2133 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI climbed the East wall of the crater via the Notch Trail. I've referenced Kuiki in describing the ascent, because that is the nearest peak, but the only goal was to get to the rim and back quickly before we had to leave Paliku for Kaupo. In any case, even if I had intended to climb Kuiki, per se, I would have had no certainty of having reached that particular point along the rim (unless there is a marker), due to the extremely low visibility. The Notch Trail was extremely treacherous in the wet weather, especially during the descent.
