Waianae Summit Trail Attempt, Day 1, Kaena Point to Mount Ka’ala

Starting in the dark so we can not draw too much attention in our dubious hiking.

Early morning lights, the top is Kaena point and it’s light tower, and below is looking back towards Waianae.


Slinking through the hunting trails east of the military installation.

Can you spot a Kenji hiding in the bushes?









Ridges still partially enveloped in the misty air.










If you look hard enough above, you might see a slight part in the vegetation, yeah that’s our trail -_-



High five for nearing towards 3 points, we sit and enjoy a small break while taking in the dramatic views.



Photo above is the ridges we had walked already, just a little way to go till we get to Ka’ala!

“Hurray a road!” 1 hour later, “This road is bullshit.”



One lone yellow tree in a forest of green.






Our humble roof for the night, we did our best to protect against the wet but it inevitably got a few of our things soaked.

Great view…







Top of Ka’ala at night, from the summit!
