I STUMBLED ACROSS this video on The Daily What this evening and made the mistake of clicking play. Now my palms are all sweaty and my heart feels weird.
Some sick part of me still wants to know more, so I’ve since been Googling the hike. There must be some kind of mistake, as Hiking Oahu has the Olomana Trail rated as a mere intermediate. The trip log found on LandscapeImagery.com seems much more realistic, giving the trail an obviously well-deserved “very difficult.”
This does nothing to help my crippling fear of heights, but the view from the peak looks almost worth it.
