First Peak Only - Gruelling but Amazing
mai 2014
Jeg var veldig nervøs for å gjøre denne turen etter å ha lest alle anmeldelsene på det! Men til slutt bestemte jeg at jeg kunne få min egen avgjørelser og ville bare stoppe når jeg følte det var utrygt. Gjett om jeg er glad jeg gjorde den beslutningen. Hva en gåtur! Jeg bare gjorde det første fjelltopp - anmeldelser på den andre og tredje topper hørtes uferdige og det var artikler på den første storhetstiden som allerede hadde testet min tankegang så jeg var fornøyd med bare det første peak. Dette er en tøff fottur, ingen tvil om det! Du kan ikke være redd for høyder, kan du ikke være redd for å bli skitten og du må ta med deg skarpskytter tankegang med deg! Ta med mye vann (hydra pack er best) og sukkerholdig snacks, du trenger den. Størstedelen av turen er en gradvis bratt men det er noen få tau bakkene og ekstremt smale, bratte, steinete stier som vil teste deg. Det er teknisk og hvis du aldri har opplevd denne typen fottur før du finner det skremmende. Vi haiket sporet på en vakker, solfylt dag, men den første delen av turen var fortsatt svært gjørmete (ikke glem myggmiddel!!). Jeg vil ikke anbefale denne turen etter en nylig regndusj, det ville være altfor farlig fjellsti!! Definitivt sjekk været for dagen du planlegger å gå fotturer, før du drar på denne turen. Når vi fjernet gjørme og den frodige treet dekker temperaturen økt betraktelig. Vi var takknemlig for vår Hydra Pack! Til tross for all den negative anmeldelser på denne fjellturen, jeg ble positivt overrasket over antall personer fottur på riktig spor. Dette fikk meg til å føle meg litt mer behagelig. Dette er definitivt ikke en gåtur til å gjøre på egen hånd. Ikke det at en observatør ville gjøre det mye forskjell hvis et tau ga måte, men den er fremdeles godt å vite at det finnes noen med på dine tilbake! Denne turen sparket baken men det var vel verdt innsatsen og challenge!! Bare vær smart & vet grensene dine. Du trenger ikke å gå helt til topps for å sette pris på skjønnhet og høste fruktene av denne turen!

I did this trail twice in 1980 as an 11yr old. Once with a friend and his dad, then I took my dad back a month or so later. We moved back to the mainland a few months later and this was my 1st time back to Hawai'i.

A lot has changed in 40yrs, including the golf course that houses the trailhead and forces you to park on a neighborhood street and walk 3/4ths of a mile to get to it. (Also, the reviews are correct, make sure you park way off the road! If you block any of the psuedo-sidewalk there, you will get a ticket!) I saw 4 cars with tickets on the windshields. Luckily, I read the reviews! 😉

While I probably wouldn't take my late elementary school aged kid up this trail now (it's a wonder us 70s kids survived childhood by today's standards...but we sure had fun!) it is actually a safer hike now as 40+yrs of tree and plant growth has covered much the exposed ridges and made more of a natural "safety net". But please dont misread this. The ridge is still pretty exposed and hazardous, if you do not respect it.

I was very excited to bring my wife back here to take this hike. I have been telling her about it for almost 30yrs! But after reading the reviews, we almost cancelled the hike. Maybe my 40yr memories were glorifying and forgetting the danger. (The hike did, in retrospect, scare my dad pretty bad.)

But we are so glad we didn't cancel! My wife and I, now in our 50s and way out of shape even by our standards, made the hike and we loved it. The rock scrambles, with and without ropes were challenging but fun. My wife did have to stop at the last rope climb (about 50 yards and ond pretty harrowing non-roped rock scramble from the summit.) There was a large step that her 4'11 frame just could not negotiate, even with the ropes. But she encouraged me to finish.

So I walked along the upper exposed ridge (now less exposed) and climbed the last 12ft or so up the rock face to the summit. And oh my! The views are spectacular! Just how I remembered! So worth the sore, aged muscles I have now.

All that said, this is a VERY CHALLENGING trail! And there definitely is some real danger involved. But it is doable. As long as you respect the danger and your limits. When faced with a dangerous situation, there is a fine line between bravery and stupidity. It is different for everyone based on there experiences but know where that line is for yourself. My wife did and she stopped at the last rope climb. I am glad she did.

I definitely suggest good hiking boots due to the muddiness in the 1st half and the rock climbs and scrambles on the second half. But I saw several people summit in sneakers. I read some reviews suggesting micro-spikes. That may be overkill. If you have them, bring them, but don't go buy a set for this hike.

Here's the deal - this hike is extremely dangerous. You're risking your life to get a photo on top of the first peak. Past that it get's even riskier.

I read all of the reviews before my wife and I hiked it, and came to the faulty conclusion that all of the extreme danger came into play if you went past the first peak and attempted the second and third peaks. That is false. There is a section where you risk your life to make it to the top of the first peak.

It is a cool hike, and you get a great workout because it's all uphill. But you end up having to make a ridiculous choice at the end of the hike.

There are four or five roped sections because the incline is so steep - nearly vertical in some places. If you fall on one of these sections, there's a high probability that you'll break a bone. Of course, if you hit your head, it could be fatal. That's pretty bad, but just wait...

The most dangerous section is at the very, very end. When you're about 20 to 30 feet from the top of the first peak, you have to climb a giant rock section to summit in order to get your picture. It's nearly vertical, and if you would slip and fall, you will die. There is no rope, and the fall is hundreds of feet down. You're on the knife-edge of the ridge, and you have to do short section of straight-up free climbing. It's ridiculously dangerous.

Of course, you'll want to risk it to get your picture since you hiked for hours to get there, and you're just about there. And you've seen all of the pics online of the folks who have summited. And you can't get the view and picture from the spot you're in. Maybe there's even some folks coming down from the peak - they did it, so why can't you?

So we scaled that section to get the picture, but the whole time I knew that it was stupid and risky. Coming down from the peak is even worse because you can clearly see that you will absolutely die if you slip even once. Your nervousness does not help.

Then coming down the roped sections becomes worse too because you can see that you'll break a limb or crack your head open if you fall.

The fact that so many people summit the first peak without fatal consequences must show that when your life is on the line, you will tend to rise to the challenge out of an instinctive will to live. But why take that chance for a picture?

But make no mistake, you are risking your life and the lives of your family/friends/partner/etc.,... if you do this hike. That last pitch to the first peak should technically only be attempted with a harness, ropes, and a belay partner. It's true rock-climbing with deadly consequences.

Obviously, we made it back o.k but I told myself that I'd write a review to warn others that you do indeed have to risk your life to summit the first peak. It's just stupid.

Attempting the second and third peaks is even more dangerous.

Google Olomana Trail/Olomana Mountain to read all of the stories of people losing their lives or having to be rescued with helicopters.

There are other hikes on Oahu that give you spectacular views of the ocean from up high. Even though it's also an intense workout to get to the top of the other hikes, you don't have to risk death to get the picture and have a great day. I would recommend choosing one of the pillbox hikes instead. We did those too, and I think that the pictures are even better.

(I rated this hike with five stars in the hope that more people would read it).

If you are a healthy, strong, and somewhat smart person, this trail is highly recommended. Hiking to the first peak is definitely fun, but not for everyone, the peaks get harder and harder to ascend and more and more risky. But as an 18 year old with no fear, that was the best hike of my life, at the top of the 3rd peak you will feel like a king. Be safe.

This was by far the most challenging...yet rewarding hike I’ve ever done. Plenty of rocks to climb, ropes to ascend and descend, but the views are absolutely priceless. I’d suggest bringing gloves if you have em, spikes help for the descend.

I went on this hike somewhat reluctantly after reading the reviews, but I'm glad I did. We only went to the first peak, which took us about 4 hours (including the 0.75 mile walk to & from the car). The trail entrance is on a private road leading to a golf course, but we parked near the bus stop on the main road and walked from there. Note: we got a ticket for not leaving 3 feet of "sidewalk" aka road shoulder to the side of our car, so don't make that mistake. It starts out muddy (hadn't rained in at least 2 days prior to our hike, and it was still really muddy), and then dries out and gets pretty steep. There are multiple areas where you have to climb up 8-10 feet rock walls, and there are ropes to help you. The final rock wall right before the summit is about 12 feet high. If you have zero experience rock climbing (I have minimal experience but have been to climbing gyms several times before), this hike will be tricky and potentially dangerous. If you have microspikes, bring them! They would have made the trek back down much easier. However, the terrain, elevation, and panoramic views of Oahu make this a unique and rewarding experience that I'm glad I was talked into doing.

Street parking is on Auloa. DO NOT PARK ON THE UNIMPROVED SIDE WALK - asphalt, DO NOT BLOCK DRIVEWAYS. Police will give tickets. Respect the potential dangers of this hike. Experienced hikers have falled to their deaths. DO NOT hike alone.

Wir haben den Trail heute gemacht und sind von Waikiki mit dem Bus hingefahren (5.50 $ für ein Tagesticket, Fahrt insgesamt ca 1.5h, Bus Nr. 2 Richtung Stadtzentrum, dann Bus 56 - der hält gegenüber von dem Streifen, wo Autos anscheinend legal parken können, dauert von dort ca 15min bis zum Trailbeginn).

Der Trail ist anfangs angenehm, da recht flach und viel im Schatten, wird aber ca. 1/2h vor dem 1. Gipfel steiler und beinhaltet einige Kletterpassagen, die nicht unanspruchsvoll aber machbar sind, da fast immer Seile vorhanden sind. Höhenangst sollte man nicht haben, hingegen trittsicher sein, rutschfestes Schuhwerk tragen und für die Kletterpassagen beide Hände frei haben, also z.B. die Kamera in Rucksack o.ä. verstauen können.

Die Aussicht vom 1. Gipfel war gigantisch, wir konnten uns nicht satt sehen!! Das war der beste Trail, den wir auf Oahu gemacht haben.
Der Trail ist definitiv nicht für Kinder geeignet.

Ein wirklich toller Trail mit einem wahnsinns Ausblick auf dem 1. Peak.
Achtung: nichts für Kinder und Hunde - der Trail enthält ca. 15 Kletterpassagen mit Seilen als Hilfsmitteln, wo ca. 5-10m hohe Felspassagen geklettert werden müssen. Körperliche Fitness sollte gegeben sein, da auf ca. 2,5km Strecke ab Trail-Eingang knapp 500 Höhenmeter zu bewältigen sind.
Wir haben für den Anstieg auf den 1. Peak ab Eingang des Parks etwa 100 Minuten gebraucht und sind fit. Der Abstieg geht durch die Kletterpassagen nicht wesentlich schneller.
Ein Großteil der Strecke ist im Wald im Schatten, daher auch bei höheren Temperaturen machbar (Achtung nur 1. Peak).
Es empfiehlt sich genug Flüssigkeit mitzunehmen, grade wenn man mehr als nur den 1. Peak beklettern will.
Festes Schuhwerk ist Pflicht, es wird durch sehr schlammige Passagen danach schlimm aussehen.

Mt Olomana is a beautiful trail if you know what you are doing. If you are not an experienced hiker it can and has been deadly. Don't go if you don't like heights or sheer cliffs and don't hike after heavy rains.

However you get to this hike, you will be going through quiet neighborhoods that are now overburdened with tourists and chattering. Your presence is not appreciated.
