Description

Mount Olomana is a beautiful three-peaked mountain on the southeast corner of Oahu, providing a popular climb on the island.

The first and highest peak is the eponymous Olomana, with the subsequent two peaks named Paku'i and Ahiki. Even though these vaulted summits are extremely aesthetic and attractive destinations, this is not an easy hike.

This hike requires up to class 4 scrambling, including a 15-foot vertical section of rock.

You can also expect to encounter cables, ropes, slick roots, and rocks that will be wet and muddy at times.

Do not underestimate this hike. The route shown here ends at the top of Ahiki at the end of the ridge, but it's also possible to simply turn around at the summit of Olomana without doing the ridge traverse each way.

That will shorten the hike and make it a bit easier. Sources: https://www.summitpost.org/mount-olomana/151222
